about

Fleas, ticks, lice, parasites--award-winning nonfiction author Albert Marrin explores all of these gross creatures and more in this fascinating volume--now in a new format!

From nonfiction master Albert Marrin, here is the shocking story of the longest running war of all time: man versus parasite. From fleas, ticks, lice, and bedbugs to worms, mites, leeches, and maggots, Marrin explains what parasites are, how they invade our bodies, and their effects for good or ill. At their best, parasites have saved limbs and lives; at their worst, they've been responsible for the deaths of billions. With photographs and illustrations throughout, this exploration of the hidden world exposes the creatures responsible for making our skin crawl--since the beginning of time.

Reformatted to a digest-sized paperback and retaining all of the original content, this exploration of what's eating you--literally--is sure to appeal to middle graders everywhere!
