Shortlisted for the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize 2019

Meet the bacteria, viruses, and other germs and microbes that are all around, but too small for us to see, in this children’s science book by bestselling author and science comedian Steve Mould.

What do a squid that glows, fungus that grows, and tiny creatures in the soil under your toes all have in common? Find out in this dynamic and engaging book all about bacteria, viruses, and other germs and microbes. The Bacteria Book perfectly walks the line between “ew, gross!” and “oh, cool!”, exploring why we need bacteria and introducing readers to its microbial mates: viruses, fungi, algae, archaea, and protozoa.

The Bacteria Book is a fun and informative introduction to a STEAM subject that brings kids up-close to the big world of tiny science. With remarkable photography, kooky character illustrations, and lots of fun facts, this book uses real-life examples of microbiology in action to show how microbes keep our bodies and our world running.

Publisher Review

Brilliantly written, very easy to understand -- Parent with children ages 7 and 10 * Toppsta * Definitely a book which will be used over and over again -- Parent with child age 10 * Toppsta * It is an engaging, fun and informative book. My 6 year old was engaged straight away -- Parent with child age 6 * Toppsta * It was a good quality book... I'd recommend this book to any children who are interested in science -- Parent with child age 5 * Toppsta * I read this book with my 6 year old son and he was instantly absorbed in the book -- Parent with child age 6 * Toppsta * This is a lovely colourful and easy to understand book... I think this is a book they will keep picking up! -- Parent with child age 6 * Toppsta * The book takes a 'Horrible Histories' approach to making facts compelling... This book is a real hit for children old enough and curious enough to learn more about bacteria in a fun and accessible way -- Parent with child age 10 * Toppsta * This is a really interesting and well written book full of amazing facts and fabulous illustrations... I learned so much from this book and it's led to talking points with the kids -- Parent with child age 6 * Toppsta * Look at the cover: even kids who hate science will want to pick this up! Penned by Steve Mould (talk about being born to write this book), DK's usual methods to astonish remain. From glowing squids and all the ways you can catch the common cold to superpowered bacteria and micro animals, each topic is lovingly presented, with Mould's commentary a welcome counterpart to the lavish on-page presentations. * How It Works *
