Denise wants to grow mold. But where? After getting a microscope for her birthday, Denise searches for something to look at. She decides that growing mold in her room will provid her with exciting specimens, but her mother has other ideas. The story comes alive with beautifully rendered watercolors by illustrator Penelope Dullaghan. It includes the names of different molds, instructions about growoing mold and preparing slides for your own microscope as well as lesson plans for teachers and home-schooling parents. Based on the true adventures of the author's mother, who grew up to be an award-winning microbiologist, the story is both educational and humorous. The perfect book for any curious child.
