Get to know the icky but important FUNGI that keep nature running!

It’s time to show FUNGI some LOVE! This book is an icky, mouldy celebration of the incredible work fungus does all day long. Fungus is a generous food-sharer, an air-purifier, a communication network and lots of fun, too.

Icky World takes a look at the science of the messiest parts of nature and reminds us all to protect these icky but important bits of our precious planet. Each book has been reviewed and endorsed by an expert in the relevant branch of science and supports curriculum learning in the areas of science and ecology for ages 6 and up.
