Tiny Creatures
The World of Microbes

author: Nicola Davies
illustrator: Emily Sutton

All around the world—in the sea, in the soil, in the air, and in your body—there are living things so tiny that millions could fit on an ant’s antenna. They’re busy doing all sorts of things, from giving you a cold and making yogurt to eroding mountains and helping to make the air we breathe.

“Sutton’s large-scale illustrations help children to visualize microorganisms and processes that are too small to see. . . . A handsome and rewarding picture book.” — Booklist (starred review)

illustrator’s comments:
Emily Sutton has a degree in illustration from Edinburgh College of Art. She says, “Illustrating Tiny Creatures has opened my eyes to the incredible and unexpected beauty of a world so small that it can't be seen without a microscope.
