This is a long shot, but...

...does anyone know of any material about the Black Death, or plagues in general, suitable for a nine-year-old?

Young F has been reading about it in Brendan O'Brien's The Story of Ireland, and although now reassured that the danger from fleas and rats has been much reduced, and that in any case bubonic plague is treatable with modern antibiotics, he is keen to learn more.

A quick web search reveals that the Museum of London has an exhibit about it. But do readers know of anything else?
