Within our bodies hides an entire world of organisms called microbes. They boost our immune systems, digest our food, regulate our metabolism and even impact on our mental health.
Through Katie Brosnan’s personable illustrations, we follow the digestive process from the moment the food enters our mouths to the moment waste leaves our bodies. Along the way we learn about this fascinating scientific frontier and gain an insight into the vast ecosystem that exists inside us.
Katie Brosnan loves being creative. When she isn’t drawing, writing or screen-printing, she helps to run art workshops for children and makes one-off ceramic characters. She achieved an MA with Distinction in Children’s Book Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art and a BA in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University. In 2018, Katie was a UK winner in the international picture book competition ‘Picture This!’ and was highly commended in the Macmillan Prize for illustration.
