Meet the bacteria, viruses, and other microbes that are all around us, but are too small for us to see.

What do glowing squid, mouldy bread, and soil creatures all have in common? They're all part of the world of microbiology! In this awesome introductory book for kids, the big world of tiny organisms is revealed with remarkable photography, kooky characters, and lots of fun facts.

This book shows you how these miniature life forms affect our world, for good and bad, through real-life examples of microbes in action. Bacteria are some of the most important organisms on Earth, and without them our bodies wouldn't be able to work. Fungi are used to make bread and cheese. Viruses and other germs can make us ill, but are fought by our amazing immune system. All these stories and more are told in clear and engaging language by bestselling author and science comedian Steve Mould.

The Bacteria Book is a fun and informative introduction to a STEAM subject that brings kids up-close with microbiology, and young scientists won't want to put it down.
