From a bestselling illustrator, this utterly unique comic-style book for kids 4 to 8 explores super-small creatures with astounding abilities.
Did you know that some of the smallest creatures on Earth have real-life superpowers?
The minute oribatid mite can lift more than 1,000 times its own weight. A tiny type of salamander (called an axolotl) can regrow body parts. And the almost microscopic tardigrade? It can survive practically anywhere, even in outer space! Acclaimed author Tiffany Stone combines comic panels and poems to share incredible facts about our world's miniature marvels, while illustrator Ashley Spires' zany cartoon-style illustrations make these itty-bitty superheroes (and supervillains) pop from the page.
From glow-in-the-dark sharks to immortal jellyfish and tiny cats with lethal aim, Super Small shows readers that just because you are small, it doesn't mean you aren't super—and sometimes being small can be super in and of itself.
Tiffany Stone is a children’s poet and critically acclaimed picture book author. She lives in BC with her family and several sort-of small (but very super) pets.
Ashley Spires is the author and illustrator of many books, including the bestselling The Most Magnificent Thing and the Binky the Space Cat series, both of which have animated adaptations. When she is not making books, she enjoys yoga, jogging, and fostering orphan kittens for her local shelter.
