Fuzzy Mud

(7 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Marshall and Tamaya take a short cut home from school one day to avoid the school bully – through the forbidden, completely out-of-bounds woods. But what’s the worst that can happen? It’s just a bunch of trees, after all.

What Tamaya and Marshall don’t know is that a teeny tiny bacteria has escaped from a nearby science laboratory and settled in the woods. It’s man-made, high-energy, and fast-multiplying, and looks a bit like fuzzy mud. And when Tamaya scoops up a chunk of fuzzy mud and throws it at the bully, well, that’s the beginning of everything…

Imagine a mad scientist invented something that grew so fast it could cover a football pitch in days. Imagine it escaped into the wild. What might happen?

Mixing Tamaya’s and Marshall’s stories with interviews and science reports, this is a fast-paced and exciting story of bravery, friendships, and science gone wacky.
