I bought this book for my son so he could complete a project on Pandas for school, my reasoning being that the short sharp facts would help him quickly form a thorough and accurate piece of work. Boy was I wrong!

This book is full of made up facts plucked from the deepest and darkest depths of the authours imagination, probably while he was smoking a drugs pipe! My son took them all as gospel, completed the project and handed it in to his teacher. Now he's in the remedial class writing on round paper with a pencil wrapped in sponge! He took a plastic pair of scissors in and nearly got suspended!

Now my kids future is ruined, my wife has left me and I'm living in my car eating out of date pot noodles. Thanks a lot David O'Doherty, you've wrecked everything for me!

On the upside my boy has a project on sharks coming up, and I've seen a shark facts book on Amazon which I might get him so we can both show his teacher and my ex-wife that we're not idiots.

By Stewart M TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 22 April 2010
Format: Hardcover
The simple truth of the fact is that Pandas are a mildly ridiculous animal. A case could be mounted that they are so badly adapted that they actually deserve to be extinct! A bear that eats bamboo, a food with almost negligible nutrient value, offers a fine vein of humorous opportunity. This book mines that vein with enthusiasm and skill.

The book delights in such nonsense as Mexicans not believing in pandas (if you are reading this in Mexico City or Chihuahua I hate to break the news to you: pandas are real!), pandas being magnetic due to the amount of iron in their livers and that the collective noun for a group of pandas is a "cupboard"! Many of the "facts" about pandas link together in ways which are frankly silly and deeply amusing.

This book cracked up my book loving 7 year old and made me laugh as well.

I have recently learnt that it is impossible to lie when looking into the eyes of a panda. As I am staring into the dark pools of a panda's eyes as I type, you know all I have said about this book is true!

This book would make a great gift for anybody with a sense of humour that leans towards the ridiculous!

Delightful, funny, silly and highly recommended.

Do you know the collective noun for a group of pandas? Do you know what role pandas have played in the development of popular music? Do you know what use old fax machines can be to pandas? If not, you NEED this book! No matter how much you may think you know about pandas, you will doubtless find something new here. Although the cover showing one of these charming black-and-white animals sitting at a desk using a PC may give you a clue that you may need to take some of the facts with a pinch of salt... or bamboo.

this book, this book is bloody marvellous.
david o'doherty, the man who brought us the "extremely low energy musical whimpsy" genre of comedy is back to give us some more of his ELEMW magic.
first class in everyway.
small size, easy for your kids to bring into school and amuse other kids, and to p-i-s-s off biology teachers. this is the one.
got a copy for my mate's girlfriend for christmas, it's a pretty cheap gift, but got a pretty good response

Each of these 100 facts about sharks is informative and factual. The illustrations help to illustrate these facts, which are about sharks. Shark based facts help us learn about sharks, and to learn the facts.

This is book is really pretty funny, unlike my silly review. It sits on my coffee table permanently, so that all my friends can know how interested I am in shark facts in numbers up to 100.

I am an American, and I watch Nevermind The Buzzcocks on YouTube because it's hysterical. I saw the episode with David O'Doherty on it. As soon as he said "If you shave a panda, its fur when woven into fabric is bulletproof" I knew I had to buy this book. So I ordered it from across the ocean. My entire office has been giggling about this book all afternoon.

Thank goodness for the internet.

I first heard about this book when watching never mind the buzzcocks, I decided to buy it for entertainment reasons. Its a great cook to pick up when you are bored and need a laugh. It is also a really nice quality book, hard back and good quality paper, also would be great for a present. I am 14, i love it so do all my friends and my parents, good for all ages :)
