Enter the hilarious world of Sam Quigley, the strange-fact-obsessed owner of two stick insects called Twiggy and Wiggy in Exploding Beetles and Inflatable Fish. Sam really likes interesting facts, the kind that will make you shout "Wow! I never knew that". Things like:- Woodlice don't wee - instead a smelly gas comes wafting out of their shells - There is a fish with a stomach so stretchy it can swallow things twice as big as itself- Bombardier beetles can explode like toxic water pistols! Written by Tracey Turner, this STEM-focused book is packed with incredible facts and stats about the world's weirdest animals.

With a narrative that will have readers hooked, plus cool cartoon-style illustrations by Andrew Wightman, it's a perfect book for fact fans, animal lovers and reluctant readers alike.
