subjects than anybody on Earth' - Chris Tarrant
It's true - you'll find the answer to crazy things like which city has more
dogs than people . . . who owns a toilet that costs $175,000 . . . the
official name for the space between your eyebrows . . . and which animal
sleeps for only five minutes a day!
HOW TO AVOID A WOMBAT'S BUM is the perfect solution for long journeys (the
Wright brothers' first flight was shorter than the wingspan of a 747),
holidays (it snowed in the Sahara desert on 18 February 1979) and Christmas
presents (Christmas was officially abolished in England between 1642 and
1652). You'll be addicted to the wonderful and wacky facts you can amaze
all your friends and family with. It's impossible to put down! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
