"A rollicking ride through the wonderful world of animal symbiosis. In this remarkable book, Macken Murphy brings us a science lesson wrapped up in lots of fun." Children's Book of the Week, Press Association

Heard about the fish that clean shark teeth? Or the frog that lives with a tarantula? Welcome to the weird world of symbiosis – where animals form incredible relationships.

Macken Murphy, host of the popular animal podcast Species, introduces his favourite symbiotic relationships in his first kids’ nonfiction book, 
Animal Sidekicks. Along the way he explains the cool science behind the baffling behaviour of some animals – from friendly alliances to pesky parasites. Alongside him, illustrator Dragan Kordić skilfully brings to life head-scratching relationships in nature, including:

• The crab that wears a sea urchin as a hat
• The bat that goes to bed inside a plant
• The warthog that likes a mongoose massage

You’ll even find out about symbiotic relationships including YOU! (Hint – is your head ever itchy?) By the end of the book you won’t look at nature in the same way again!
