This exciting non-fiction picture book introduces young readers to the wondrous (and invisible) world of microbes.

There are living things so tiny millions could fit on a dot. Although they are invisible, they are everywhere and they multiply very quickly. They are vital for life on earth, and do all sorts of things - from giving us a cold and making yoghurt to wearing down mountains and helping to make the air we breathe. With charming illustrations by Emily Sutton, this friendly, clever book succeeds in conveying the complex science of micro-organisms simply and clearly, and opens up an exciting new avenue for young non-fiction.

MEDIA REVIEWS
With charming illustrations, this friendly, clever book succeeds in conveying the complex science of micro-organisms simply and clearly, and opens up an exciting new avenue for young non-fiction. -- Independent Bookshop Week supplement * The Guardian *
...the simple but amazing facts flow and by the end of this short read the child has a wonderful insight into 'the tiniest lives doing the biggest jobs. * The Bath Chronicle *
Get them learning science early, with playful picture books like this romp through the world of micro-organisms. Explore how we catch a cold, what bacteria go into yoghurt and all kinds of other fascinating facts, simply and entertainingly explained. * Time Out *
...a brilliant book on science. Introducing the complicated and seemingly incomprehensible world of microbes in a remarkably simple and elegant way, the genius of this book is that through explorations of scale, purpose and presenting the good, the bad and the ugly, children as young as four are able to understand the complexities of these powerful and tiny creatures. With beautiful illustrations and gripping text, this was very much an "again" book. * Culture Baby *
A brilliant work of non-fiction * The Schoool Run .com *
