Bizarre, incredible and downright gross facts about human and animal bodies
In Astounding Animal Body Facts, you'll learn about some of the most unbelievable and intricate adaptations in the animal kingdom. Giggle and gasp as you read about and see some truly shocking animal bodies, such as the lungless ET salamander that breaths with its skin and looks like your favourite alien, or the pistol shrimp that can snap its huge claw shut at such great speed, it sends a wave through the water that stuns nearby fish - how's that for clever hunting?
The 'Body Bits' series is written by the hilarious and knowledgeable Paul Mason, and illustrated by Dave Smith, whose laugh-out-loud and action-packed artwork can't be beat. Reading and learning become a source of endless fun for even the most reluctant reader with 'Body Bits'.
Paul's books cover a wide range of subjects, from whether the Romans ate crisps to how to build the world's best skatepark, but he writes mostly about sport. Whether you are interested in swimming, cycling, snowboarding, surfing or another sport, Paul has probably written something that will inspire you to get out and give it a try. Paul writes in a shack by the beach, which he shares with his one-eyed surf dog, Daisy.
