The Small Friends Books series tells stories about symbiotic partnerships and cooperation between microorganisms and larger life forms.


Featuring microbes, molecules, mucus and more - we hope these books will nurture an appreciation for the role our small friends play - from bacteria & viruses, to archaea, fungi, protozoa & algae...


Small Friends Books are created through a symbiosis between artists, writers, scientists, educators and designers. The series is co-published by Scale Free Network and CSIRO Publishing.
