There are Tittles in This Title by Mitchell Symons There are Tittles in This Title, Hardback (October 2014)

From information about words and their uses, useful lists of things you never knew had names, palindromes, famous lines from literature and film, to bizarre test answers, insurance claims and much, much more, this book is bursting with truly oddball facts about words and language - and will have you hooked from the very first page.

Why Don't You Smell When You're Sleeping? by Mitchell Symons Why Don't You Smell When You're Sleeping?, Hardback (June 2014)

Did you know ...that a 'zyzzyx' is a type of wasp? That the chances of being injured by a toilet seat at some point in your life are reckoned to be one in 6.500? That the collective noun for giraffes is the very apt a 'tower of giraffes' and that snail races start with the words 'ready, steady, Slow!' This title features these facts.

Why Spacemen Can't Burp... by Mitchell Symons Why Spacemen Can't Burp..., Paperback (February 2014)

Can rocks have snot? Why do doughnuts have holes in the middle? Could a human child ever be raised by animals? What have hyenas got to laugh about? And why is it impossible to belch after blast-off? This title deals with these questions.
