Tiny The Invisible World of Microbes by Nicola Davies
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.

The School Librarian Nicola Davies imparts a sense of wonder at the variety and abundance of near-invisible life forms Wall Street Journal Europe Exploring the wonders of microbes, this book is a great big, super-small wow. From grinning whale down to mini ant and beyond, readers are hurled into a world of scale and numbers. Tiny does a glorious job of depicting the undepictable with carefully chosen statistics and magnificent illustrations in earthy greens and browns. The sequence showing microbe multiplication will blow minds and smack gobs. And to read that the smallest workers are doing the biggest jobs - well, that can't but delight young wonder-struck readers.
