Unseen Worlds

By Hélène Rajcak
Illustrated by Damien Laverdunt

Discover a hidden universe of microscopic monsters right before your eyes.

Unfold each page to reveal stunningly detailed illustrations bursting with jelly-like amoebae, predatory centipedes, ravenous mosquitoes and more mites than you could imagine. From the murky ocean depths to your kitchen cupboard and even inside your nose, you’ll travel to locations both familiar and strange as you search for the smallest creatures on Planet Earth. You’ll never see the world the same way again!

  • Contains hundreds of gross, fascinating or simply bizarre microscopic animals, plants and other organisms
  • Learn about the creatures hiding in familiar locations: your house, bedroom or back garden
  • Large gatefolds reveal more about the microscopic worlds on each spread
