How to Avoid a Wombat's Bum by Mitchell Symons

Did you know THAT: The first ready-to-eat breakfast cereal was Shredded Wheat in 1893 (it beat Kellogg's Corn Flakes by just five years). Scarlett Johansson, Ashton Kutcher and Simon Cowell all have twin brothers. Everton were the first British football club to introduce a stripe down the side of their shorts. The word DUDE was coined by Oscar Wilde and his friends. It is a combination of the words 'duds' and 'attitude'. Well you do now!
