Super Small: Miniature Marvels of the Natural World (Hardcover)
This utterly unique book for kids 4 to 8 explores super-small creatures with astounding abilities through rhyming and comic-style spreads.
Did you know that some of the smallest creatures on Earth have real-life superpowers?
The minute oribatid mite can lift more than 1,000 times its own weight. A tiny type of salamander (called an axolotl) can regrow body parts. And the almost microscopic tardigrade? It can survive practically anywhere, even in outer space Acclaimed author Tiffany Stone combines comic panels and zany rhymes to share incredible facts about our world's miniature marvels, while illustrator Ashley Spires' cartoon-style illustrations make these itty-bitty superheroes (and supervillains) pop from the page.
From glow-in-the-dark sharks to immortal jellyfish and tiny cats with lethal aim, Super Small shows readers that just because you are small, it doesn't mean you aren't super-and sometimes being small can be super in and of itself.
