Staph is a bacterium that was living a happy life on the eyelid of a sad man. She gets caught up in a tear and sparkles into freefall, leaving the sad man behind. One of a series of illustrated books for early readers introducing children to the extraordinary and hidden universe of microbiology. Based on Staphylococcus aureus, this spellbinding exploration of macroscopic and microscopic worlds pays surreal tribute to beauty and life and love through the lens of a tear. Written by Professor Mike Manefield and memorably illustrated by the sensational Emily Mitchell (emilypencilhands). This soft cover saddle stitched book has 12 pages and measures 21x21 cm.
