Why are slugs so slimy?
What is the best thing to do if you fall into quicksand?
Why does skin go wrinkly when we stay in the bath for too long?
How rare are four-leafed clovers?
Was there a Mary who had a little lamb?
How clever is your right foot?
And are there any loos in igloos?

Praise for Do Igloos Have Loos?

“I thought this book was great and full of fascinating facts. I learnt lots of new things from reading it - some were quite disgusting!”

Aysha Leach age 8, First News

“Here's an entertaining title for young and old alike... This title is really great fun!”

South Wales Argus

“It's an idiosyncratic galmaufry of answers to questions that range from the scientifically verified to the nebulously philosophical... It's good (almost) clean fun, ideal for fans of trivia to dip into.”

James Lovegrove, Financial Times

“Mitch knows more totally useless things about useless subjects than anybody on Earth”

Chris Tarrant
