Do grown-ups tell the truth when they’re telling you weird facts? What do you think? Of course they don’t! This book of funny facts reveals the naughty whoppers that adults tell to kids like you. Such as: camels carry water in their humps. Goldfish have a three-second memory. Pirates were forced to walk the plank. Um – not so! It’s not that poor old grown-ups mean to lie to you. They’re just too embarrassed to admit that they don’t have a clue! Now you can unravel the bunkum and get the REAL truth about the weird and wonderful things that actually happen on our planet. Get set for heaps of fun telling everyone the freaky facts that YOU know – and THEY don’t!
