The Secret World of the Little Beasts

Rights available

This short illustrated young adult novel speaks about the adventures of five friends and a “highly learned” grandfather, who encourages the aspiring young explorers to uncover the world of the little beasts – microorganisms that live all around us, affecting our health and how we feel, but are often overlooked because of their smallness.

It's not just an ordinary youth fiction, but much more. The illustrations are smartly combined with real photographs of microorganisms through microscope and of microorganism colonies on agar gel. The book consists of short non-fiction part which can serve as the first stepping stone to the world of microbiology.
