From people who smell armpits for a living to grass that grows on cars - and needs to be mowed, "Time For Kids That's Strange But True!" takes an offbeat and very kid-appealing look at the workings and fascinating oddities of the natural world as well as offbeat human behaviour and talents. The book's editorial mission is to show kids 8 to 12 that planet Earth is filled with the odd, the weird, and the wacky-both natural, human and human made. It will encourage readers to learn more about the subjects presented, and to spur kids to find examples of strange-but-true phenomena in their own communities. The book, organised by subject, will feature colourful photos that will bring to life the unusual world of the animal kingdom (lizards that walk on water and insects that can live without their head), the human body (hair and nails grow after a person dies), science oddities (teleportation devices and telepathy), and much much more.
