Description

Strange but True! is an eye-popping collection of extreme, unusual, and cryptic animals, places, and phenomena. Encounter mouse-eating plants, enter the cave of 20 million bats, dip a toe in a rainbow-colored river, discover zombie snails, frozen frogs, and volcanic lightning, and meet snakes that can eat alligators or antelopes.

In Strange But True! "fast facts" panels on each spread provide background to the main subject or details of related cases in a stripped-down and engaging style, while the infographic spreads in each section offer even more weird facts and stories while debunking popular strange-but-untrue myths.

Bursting with eccentric animals, peculiar weather, and unusual places, Strange But True! brings the weird and wonderful to life with vivid jaw-dropping illustrations, amazing facts, and clear scientific explanations, satisfying the curiosities of even the most precocious kids.
