A housefly buzzes in the key of F

£14.99

During its lifetime, a cow can produce nearly 200,000 glasses of milk. Which is extraordinary, because where is it getting all those glasses? The natural world is an amazing, compelling and funny place: a place where fact is always more staggering – and often funnier – than fiction. Based on BBC Radio 4’s popular science and comedy series Nature Table, and with an introduction from the show’s presenter, Sue Perkins, this book is filled with fascinating facts, big jokes, fun games and entertaining anecdotes.
