Microbes are everywhere: in the soil and oceans, in snow, and inside our bodies. But in the era of Antony van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723), people believed that what they saw with their own eyes was all that existed in the world. How did a simple tradesman—who didn't go to college or speak English or Latin like all the other scientists—change everyone's minds? Proving that remarkable discoveries can come from the most unexpected people and places, this Robert F. Sibert Honor Book for readers 9 to 12 tells his inspiring tale, and Vivien Mildenberger's pastel, colored pencil, and watercolor illustrations lend a rather joyful air to the proceedings.
