Lliana Bird and Dr Jack Lewis tackle the strange and surreal phenomena from the depths of the oceans to the limits of the far flung universe; the dark corners of your laundry basket to the forgotten compartments of your fridge. Packed with unusual facts and stories of the absurd each of the fascinating insights is told with the Geek Chic team's inimitable humour and wit.


An hilarious exploration all things bizarre from the world of science, The Mice Who Sing for Sex takes on weighty issues including heavy metal loving sharks, life-threatening skinny jeans, our impending jellyfish apocalypse and of course, the singing mice of the title.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is a wonderful wander down the more bizarre, surprising and sometimes shocking corridors of scientific research. My favourite must be the study which demonstrates that pre-trained goldfish can tell the difference between Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" and Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring", I have academic colleagues who can't do that -- Brian Cox
I met the Emerald Cockroach Wasp and the Grasshopper Hairworm and 28 days later I was still enjoying this fabulous book . . . More science packed into one book than grains of sand on an area the size of Wales - brilliant! -- Chris Packham
From the sharks who like AC/DC to the cockroaches steered by remote control, Lliana and Dr Jack's book is a fun romp through some of the curiouser corners of research - taking in some surprisingly cutting edge science along the way -- Tom Whipple, Science Editor, The Times
