            101 Weird Words (and Three Fakes) is a mini-dictionary jam-packed with unusual or interesting words, followed by a fun and descriptive definition for each one. Filled with silly pictures and strange wordy facts, this is a book to sweep the reader through the alphabet from AMBIDEX...TROUS (no repeated letters) to ZUGZWANG (not a place you want to visit), with a generous sprinkling of riddles, puzzles and bonus facts. For an extra challenge, try to spot the three fakes in the collection. Is it YARG - the cheese that turned its maker backwards? Or maybe JUFFLE - the semi-jig, semi-shuffle you do on a zebra crossing? Only a true word detective will crack the case!

            Unexplained phenomena have been written and spoken about for centuries. Science has rationalised some things but many mysteries still remain unsolved. Is spontaneous human combustion real? Can a person burn from the inside outwards until all that remains of them is a pile of ashe...s (and maybe a charred arm or leg)? Did ancient alien astronauts visit earth thousands of years ago and leave behind secret messages and amazing feats of engineering like Stonehenge? Do UFOs exist or are they optical illusions? Using thrillingly written accounts and storyboard presentations, this fascinating collection of case files covers everything from crop circles to monsters with a view to examining and evaluating the evidence... so you can make up your own mind. Not everything you read is true and learning how to discriminate and assess the real facts is a useful, if not essential, skill for all youngsters to learn.
