Product Description:

Why wait until high school biology to start discovering the microscopic world? With this inexpensive book, a microscope and a drop of pond water, any youngster can find out about the world's smallest animals. Watch the blob-like amoeba hunt and devour its prey. See the slipper-shaped paramecium glide through the water to avoid its mortal enemy, the pincushion-shaped suctorian. Look out for the hydra, whose grasping tentacles are a constant menace to other animals. Sounds like a Saturday morning cartoon, doesn't it? This book recounts the feeding, reproductive, and defensive strategies employed by microscopic creatures in easy-to-understand language. Illustrated, 64 pgs, pb.
