Synopsis

In the Home by Sabrina Crewe, Clare Hibbert

Did you know there were tiny living things in your home that you can't see? Some are plants, others are mould, others are tiny little insects! But what do they do and what do they look like? Find out about the good ones and the bad ones! Full-page photographs of these alien-like creatures in high magnification reveals their horror (or even their beauty). This book supports natural history studies and the KS2 and KS3 science curriculum where appropriate. It is part of a series, Micro Monsters which takes a close-up look at the tiny creatures that are around us all the time and which we cannot see with the naked eye. Some are harmless, some are just pests, and some are deadly. From bedbugs to zooplankton and from bacteria to water fleas, all microscopic life is here. The revelation of the places these creatures inhabit will have readers squirming in their seats as they find out how these mini monsters can help and hinder humans. These high-interest books are accessible to readers aged 7+, but suitable for older readers who prefer less text on the page, and support natural history studies and the science curriculum at Key Stage 2 and 3. Each book features revealing close-up photos of micro monsters that are sure to dazzle and intrigue.
