School's out Everyone's favorite amoeba is headed to summer camp But instead of SUPER AWESOME FUN, Squish's summer is turning out to be SUPER AWESOME TERRIFYING For one thing, Squish can't swim. And to make matters worse, his new camp friend is a Hydra (scientific fact: A hydra's tentacles can paralyze you ). Will Squish sink or will he swim this summer? (And what's up with Pod and black holes anyways ) Find out the answers to these questions and more in the super spectacular adventure, "Squish #4: The Power of the Parasite." Summer reading has never been so slimey

Here's what people are saying about everyone's favorite amoeba
"New York Times: "
"An energetic, good-hearted escapade, one that young readers will enjoy."
"Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews"
* "Hilarious. If ever a new series deserved to go viral, this one does."
"The Bulletin: "
"A perfect mix of writing that is simple enough for early readers but still remarkably snarky, clever, and entertaining. Kids will soak up the humor, tidbits of science instruction, and adventure.
