Heard about the fish that clean shark teeth? Or the frog that lives with a tarantula? Welcome to the weird world of symbiosis - where animals form incredible relationships.
Macken Murphy introduces his favourite symbiotic relationships in his first kids' non-fiction book. Along the way he explains the cool science behind the baffling behaviour of some animals - from friendly alliances to pesky parasites.
You'll even find out about symbiotic relationships including YOU! (Hint - is your head ever itchy?) By the end of the book you won't look at nature in the same way again!

CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK "A rollicking ride through the wonderful world of animal symbiosis. In this remarkable book, Macken Murphy brings us a science lesson wrapped up in lots of fun." - Press Association
"Animal lovers will be sure to find amazing new facts on every page. . . This is an excellent addition to children's non-fiction collections." - Booklist
"A beautifully, brightly illustrated book about symbiosis... presents a nice mix of the scientifically interesting and the downright disgusting that should help to keep children engaged for a decent amount of time — for example, we particularly enjoyed reading about head lice (after having had first-hand experience of them recently), vampire finches feasting on Nazca boobies and woolly bats pooing in pitcher plants." - Nature
