Synopsis

Body Bugs by Richard Spilsbury

Did you know bed bugs can live for a year without eating? Or that head lice use their huge claws to cling on to hairs? Or that around 1 billion bacteria live on each one of your teeth? This book zooms in on some of the weird and wonderful creatures - such as ticks, mites, lice and viruses - that live on and in our bodies. Learn about the creepy crawlies that live in your eyelashes, and meet the worms that feast on half-digested food in your gut. The Zoom In On series shines a powerful light on a world so small that it's normally invisible. Scientists can zoom in on the strange creatures that live there. Now you can look down the microscope and see them too, if you dare...

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
