Synopsis

Germ Stories by Arthur Kornberg

Over the years, Nobel laureate Arthur Kornberg regaled his children and grandchildren with rhyming tales of the tiny beasties in the germ parade. Arthur's poems and stories are now available for all in this beautifully rendered children's picture book. Germ Stories will bring the microscopic world to life for the very youngest readers and grown ups alike with its richly imaginative narrations and its vividly rendered art and colour photos.
