Description

Some incorrect facts have escaped from author Adam Frost's imagination into this book...Can you figure out which fact is untrue in a sea of brilliantly weird, wonderful and unusual facts? Once you find them make sure you SPLAT them, lasso them, doodle on them - and reveal them as an imposter facts before they go out into the world! 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!
