Odd Science - Incredible Creatures

£9.99
Scientists found that male cockatoos in Australia make their own drumsticks and their own music. Each bird plays it's own different rhythm at its own different speed to attract a mate. Scientists in Tokyo have trained pigeons to distinguish between art style. They can tell the difference between works by Picasso and Monet. Odd Science: Incredible Creatures is filled with weird and wacky facts that you've never heard before. Read about the dinosaur that used camouflage, wonder at the penguins that `propose' to each other with rocks and tell your friends that the dodo was actually quite smart! There are facts about sharks that listen to Death Metal, facts about a hummingbird's diet and facts about strange creatures like `ghost' octopuses. James Olstein beautifully illustrates these odd facts in a retro-inspired, quirky style. His designs aren't meant to be taken literally, but you'll laugh-out-load when you see a spider relaxing on a pool float and dinosaurs playing with a ball! Prepare to laugh, marvel and learn. Being a geek has never been so cool.
