(And what's up with Pod and black holes anyways??) Find out the answers to these questions and more in the super spectacular adventure, Squish #4: The Power of the Parasite.

Here's what people are saying about everyone's favorite amoeba!

New York Times:

"An energetic, good-hearted escapade, one that young readers will enjoy."

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews:

* "Hilarious. If ever a new series deserved to go viral, this one does."

 

The Bulletin:

"A perfect mix of writing that is simple enough for early readers but still remarkably snarky, clever, and entertaining. Kids will soak up the humor, tidbits of science instruction, and adventure."
