    Weird and wonderful facts

    One not just for lovers of Horrid Henry's exploits.This is the first of a new series of non-fiction books which is both funny and factually correct.Great for children who don't particularly enjoy fiction but who seize upon weird and wonderful facts. There are Horrid Henry references throughout and the illustrations are particularly apt.
    I certainly didn't know that cows can only dream lying down...!
