Splat the Fake Fact! Doodle on them, laser beam them, lasso them Synopsis

Can you guess which of these facts is NOT true? Woodlice have blue blood. Dead cabbage cafe is the name of a band. King Edward III banned football in England. You swallow about one litre of snot a day! (That's roughly five skips FULL of snot, swallowed during your lifetime.) When glass snakes are attacked, their tail shatters into little pieces - these pieces jump around and distract the predator... while the rest of the snake escapes! Hunt for fascinating facts and use your detective skills to uncover the untrue 'fact'. With hilarious illustrations from the brilliant Gemma Correll, you'll need all your brains to uncover the false fact: can you 'squash' the made-up bug fact, decipher hieroglyphics, and join the stars in a night-time sky to find all the answers? Put your skills to the test as you Splat the Fact!
