"Beyond all the fish
And mosquitos and all
Was a world so incredibly,
Yes, a world so incredibly,
That your eyes couldn't see it,
Not see it at all."
This is the story of Emo, a lonely ameba--a creature too tiny to be seen, yet whose soul longs for companionship. It is the epic tale of one ameba's quest to find a friend. Emo embarks on an unforgettable journey that takes him all the way from a murky little pond to the microscope of a biology classroom. Along the way he meets an array of dazzling characters such as Gene, a Euglena, and Larry the Hairy Paramecium. In the end, Emo learns a very special lesson about friendship and, most importantly, believing in yourself.
Young people will learn about biology in a fun a relative way, as they follow along on Emo's journey. The rhyming verse and captivating illustrations make for a classic tale that readers will cherish for years to come.
