Tiny: The Invisible World of Microbes

Publisher: Walker Books

This gorgeously-presented non-fiction picture book describes itself as 'the first microbiology book for five-year-olds'. Making a complex topic simple and appealing enough for even very young readers to understand, this is a fascinating introduction to the subject of microbes - living things so tiny that millions could fit in a single dot.

Children will love exploring each beautifully-laid out page, looking out for the characters who recur on each spread - a boy, a girl and a cat. The perfectly-pitched text by award-winning author Nicola Davies conveys the information in a clear, friendly and accessible way, and Emily Sutton's charming illustrations are a real delight. This is an original, special and memorable book that sets the bar high for illustrated children's non-fiction.
