At their best, parasites have saved limbs and lives; at their worst, they've been responsible for the deaths of billions. With photographs and illustrations throughout, this exploration of the hidden world exposes the creatures responsible for making our skin crawl--since the beginning of time.Reformatted to a digest-sized paperback and retaining all of the original content, this exploration of what's eating you--literally--is sure to appeal to middle graders everywhere!
