You may not know it, but you share your home with millions of tiny monsters. Some of these creatures are so small that they were barely recognized, even by scientists, until the invention of the electron microscope. Although they may look like aliens from another planet, many of these fantastic animals live right alongside—or inside—us. This book takes a close-up look at a menagerie of tiny, unusual creatures—organisms found in our gardens, our food, our beds, and even our eyelashes!

Written with Steve Jenkins. Steve used cut- and torn-paper collage for the animal portraits. I created the small images on each page digitally.
