Editorial Reviews

Narrator Stig Wemyss disappears into the voice of smart - and smart-aleck - Simon Eliot, whom listeners will instantly recognize as that kid with a penchant for unusual trivia and a contagious enthusiasm for sharing them with his friends. Do you know when the first public-toilet wedding took place? Or where killer bees come from? Rest assured that Simon is more than happy to teach you. Simon's facts are neatly arranged in categories that most kids will appreciate, such as "Intestinal Stuff", "Old Dudes You Need to Hear About", and "Sweaty, Stinky Stuff". This charming collection of weird facts is a must-have for anyone interested in...well, everything!

Publisher's Summary

Did you know that funnel-web spiders can bite through fingernails? That most piranhas are vegetarian? That killer bees are the result of an experiment gone wrong? That a man with athlete's foot once fed parts of his decaying foot to his pet Venus flytrap - and it ate it? Yep, I know a lot of cool stuff. Welcome to my world, where one weird thing leads to another.
