Winner of the Blue Peter Book Award 2011: Best Book with Facts

The place to go to find answers to out of the ordinary questions is none other than the author Mitchell Symons and his terrific series of books, of which this is the latest.  This is his 7th compilation and will undoubtedly be as successful as it predecessors which included How to avoid a Wombat’s Bum, Why Eating Bogeys is good for you and Do Farts smell like Rotten Eggs? Lots to delight all those with a warped or even not so warped mind.  Whether this and the previous will now have covered all the unanswered or indeed unanswerable questions in the known universe we will not know until people stop writing in with suggestions for the next compilation!
