For hipsters who like to geek out over science and nature Entertaining, colorful, and full of facts, This Phenomenal Life tells the story of the wondrous ways that we humans are related to the natural world around us. Every single atom of our body is made of remnants of stars and massive explosions in the galaxies, and we share the same biochemical basis of life with all living beings on earth, from a single-celled amoeba to a giant blue whale. Misha Blaise's whimsical illustrations elucidate wild science-based facts, from the unexpected intimacy we have with fungi on a daily basis, to the similar ways that humans and birds learn to communicate. This Phenomenal Life will inspire the reader to look at the world in a whole new way.
