This playful, interactive introduction to microbes invites readers to travel with Min, an E. coli microbe, to the pages of a book, front tooth, shirt, and belly button. Microscope photographs reveal the familiar locations as unrecognizable terrain, each hosting their own microbe population. Min is joined at each destination by another microbe, including streptococcus, fungus, and corynebacterium, all represented as comic caricatures. Humor and facts work together in this clever primer for young scientists. (Ages 4–8)
