Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This is a delightful presentation for the inquiring minds of children who often imagine monsters. . . .[A] wealth of information [that] . . . opens a vista for understanding their place in the animal kingdom. . . . Without having to have access to a lab, students can see the microscopic inhabitants of our world and wonder. The embossed cover gives a sensory reward to picking up the book, and the graphic layout calls one to read it. This is a great book to encourage student research as they enter the world of the unseen.” —NSTA Recommends

“Hyper-close-up photos detail all manner of stingers, stabbers, pincers, and chompers poking out from plated exoskeletons and hairy abdomens. This entry in the Kingdom series, imported from Australia, is a great way to sneak in some basic science learning amid the din of death and destruction. If kids dare enter.” —Booklist

“Any young reader going through the "Ew, gross. Neat!" phase will love Micro Monsters. . . . [it]manages to share surprising tidbits. The info on each micro monster is divided into sidebars and intriguing headlines making it a fun read-not unlike a website page. There is so much information scattered across the page a reader will discover something new each time they read Micro Monsters” —San Francisco Book Review
