About the Author:

Morris Gleitzman grew up in England and went to live in Australia when he was sixteen. He worked as a frozen-chicken thawer, suger-mill rolling-stock unhooker, fashion-industry trainee, department-store Santa, TV producer, newspaper columnist and screenwriter. Then he had a wonderful experience. He wrote a novel for young people. Now he's one of the bestselling children's authors in Australia. He lives in Melbourne, but visits Britain regularly. His many books include WATER WINGS, BOY OVERBOARD, TOAD RAGE, BUMFACE, which was shortlisted for the Guardian Award and the Carnegie Medal, and TWO WEEKS WITH THE QUEEN, winner of the Children's Book Award.

From AudioFile:

Aristotle and his brother, Blob, are germs who are unexpectedly sent into the world from their nostril home when their nostril sneezes. In this story we learn much more than we want to about germ life. Author Gleitzman narrates his own story and skillfully portrays all of the gross thoughts and actions of the germ brothers and their companions. On another level, Gleitzman cleverly makes statements against modern war by comparing it to the "cold war" brought on by a head cold. Kids will love the yucky details such as skin flakes, bunches of germ corpses in human hankies, and what happens to germs in whipped cream. An enjoyable grossness abounds amid the science.
