Author Biography - Augustus Brown

Augustus Brown is the author of Why Pandas Do Handstands, a collection of curious scientific facts about the animal kingdom in general. In this, his second book, he turns his attention to cats and dogs, creatures that have intrigued him since he was a boy growing up on a Welsh farm with a German Shepherd-Sheepdog cross called Sputnik and a one-eyed tabby called Wilfred. In compiling this book, he scoured through countless scientific archives, books and studies, as well as scores of zoological and biological websites. He also consulted leading experts in the animal science world. He lives in London with his wife and two children.
