Number of pages: 80
In It's a Fungus Among Us, you'll meet the wild group of organisms that can turn ants into zombies and eat trillions of pounds of feces every day. They also make cheese stretchy, add sour tastes to candy, and make bread rise!
Historically, they've been blamed for the potato famine and the Salem witch trials, and in the future they may help save the environment because they can eat plastics in landfills and jet fuel from ocean crash sites.
Read about outdoor adventures, kitchen experiments, and get an introduction to Humungous Fungus, a 38-acre fungus with an ice cream named after it that holds the record for the world's largest organism. Feast your eyes on hundreds of full-color photos, check out activities and experiments, and learn all kinds of wild and wacky information.
