Amazing stories of the alien zoo of contagious germs, bacterial body snatchers, vile viruses, and squirming worms that could be living inside YOU...

If you ever need an excuse to chuck a sickie from school, here's the ultimate guide. Are you host to the African eye worm - a five centimetre-long worm that reveals itself by squirming across your eyeball? Ewww!!! Or could you tell your mum that you have a ten-metre long beef tapeworm in your guts? Gross!!! Maybe that cut on your little finger is glowing in the dark due to light-emitting bacteria? (Hmm, actually, that could be something to make all your friends jealous.) And that's before you get to the billions of tiny bugs living in your poo . . .

Be warned. If you read this book, you will never look at the world - or your own body - the same way again.

About the Authors

Adam Taor

ABOUT THE AUTHOR You wouldn’t want Dr Adam Taor looking after you if you were sick, but he’d happily write about it. That’s because he is a health writer who happens to have a medical degree - he decided soon after qualifying as a doctor that it wasn’t for him. He became a health journalist at a Sydney newspaper. He is currently Head of Copy at a health care advertising agency, and he also writes columns for THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN on bugs (like the ones in THERE’S A WORM ON MY EYEBALL) and on bits of the human body you’ve never heard of. He lives in Sydney with his two cats, Bones and Halo. ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR Douglas Holgate is a freelance illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. He has work published in Europe, the U. S. and Australia by the likes of Random House, Simon & Schuster, THE NEW YORKER magazine and Image Comics. His palatial grounds are open to the public 10 AM to 5:30 PM, Monday through Friday. Closed public holidays. He has two cats.
