"No Ordinary Flu" is a 12-page comic book that tells the story of a boy learning about his ancestors' experiences during the 1918 influenza pandemic. The boy learns of how churches and movie theaters were closed; businesses were unable to function; and doctors and nurses were not available to treat many of the sick. He also learns how the flu touched his family personally when his great-uncle became ill. The story also offers recommendations for respiratory and hand hygiene, storing supplies, working from home, planning for childcare, and helping one's neighbors during a pandemic.
