Pseu is a bacterium that finds herself in a dangerous situation. By sticking close to her new friends she manages to escape! One of a series of illustrated books for early readers introducing children to the extraordinary and hidden universe of microbiology. Based on the bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens, this colourfest written by Professor Mike Manefield and illustrated by the amazing Shira Bentley explores the a phenomenon called biofilm formation where bacteria attach to surfaces en mass to protect themselves from harm, including predation. This soft cover saddle stitched book has 20 pages, measures 16x16 cm and includes non-fiction information about the story plus an image of the bacterium the narrative is based on. Perfect for reading to infants or for children learning to read. Heck, even university students find them helpful to start imagining life on a microscopic scale.
