I didn't really like this book because all this guy did was look at microbes
Chris Rock
Although the book was meant for teens, I learned a lot from it. I like that the book focused on one particular aspect of Pasteur's life and didn't try to be a comprehensive but shallow biography.

The illustrations were also good.

This was a great little book, telling us the story of the discovery of microbes. It was a nice little glimpse into how a scientist goes about testing and retesting his theories...

I love learning things in story format-- and this is an amazing story about the discovery of the microscopic world!

A great and interesting story of a small part of Pasteur's life when he discovered microbes.
