Pelagi is a lonely little bacterium living in the oceans. Other sea creatures ignore him because he is so small and simple. But then being small and simple might turn out to be an enormous advantage! One of a series of illustrated books for early readers introducing children to the extraordinary and hidden universe of microbiology. Based on the bacterium Pelagibacter ubique, this colourful tale written by Professor Mike Manefield illustrated by Oleksii B tells the amazing story of the most abundant organism on the planet. 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.
