Product Details

Praise

In an overview of “peculiar, pulsating creatures” that are too small to be seen with the naked eye, the appropriately named Mould keeps his eye on the ick factor as he dishes out basic facts about the viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, archaea, and “micro animals” with which we share the planet. He also describes how diseases are caught and spread, explains how our immune system works, and, backed by a closing timeline, covers the development of microbiology and antibiotics…. Memorable insights into the invisible world. (glossary, index) (Nonfiction. 7-10) —Kirkus Reviews

“While Mould definitely promotes the yuck factor, he moderates it with humor…Just watch the grubby fingers reach for this one.—Booklist 

The Bacteria Book is an expert blend of visual and written information. There are lots of great attention-grabbing photos, with short blocks of text, and sidebars filled with arresting facts…Like all the best non-fiction books, it informs, entertains, and astounds. Highly recommended” —GeekDad.com
