Author(s): Matt Brown
All the stories and legends about animals we've heard since childhood are gleefully debunked in this hugely entertaining and informative book.
You may think you know the truth about animals, but Matt Brown is here to set you straight. In his inimitable humorous style, Brown takes apart widely held misconceptions, from lemmings throwing themselves off cliffs (they don't, but some occasionally just fall off) to bats being blind (they're not, but use their more sophisticated echolocation for certain hunting). Whether you're searching for facts on head-in-the-sand ostriches or cats landing on their feet, this book contains a wealth of information on every type of creature--along with fun features on animals' odd diets.
