What's Eating You?
Parasites - The Inside Story

author: Nicola Davies
illustrator: Neal Layton

series name:
Animal Science

Mites and lice, fleas, ticks, and tapeworms -- most living creatures that have a habitat also are a habitat, including you (are you itchy yet?). Unwelcome guests -- parasites -- are everywhere, from the barnacles hitching a ride on a humpback whale’s head to the tiny flies that control a bee’s brain and make it literally dig its own grave. Now an expert team returns for an in-depth look at how these insidious critters do it, whether it’s leaping aboard moving targets or morphing their body shapes, and what their unwitting hosts have learned to do to fight back and reclaim their space.
Back matter includes an index and a glossary.

"The subject is inherently fascinating to kids, who will fi nd a good deal of
information. . . .The artwork adds a welcome comic veneer." -- BOOKLIST (Age 8 and up)
