Did you know that a town in Spain celebrates an annual Tomato fight? That British police are still searching for crooks who stole 60,000 bees from their hive? These are just a few of the bizarre but totally true stories you'll find in this exciting new addition to the popular Weird But True series that prove fact IS often stranger than fiction! In keeping with Weird But True's signature style, this book features cool photos, a fun design, and plenty of zany stories from current day and history.
How does a fact make it into a NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC KIDS Weird But True book? First, it has to be weird. Our team of editors and writers scour the news, the latest discoveries, Internet gems, urban legends, wacky myths, and tantalizing tidbits to find a fact that's really weird. It also has to be true. So our researchers check every single word to make sure the fact is 100 percent accurate. It has to look cool. Our photo editors and designers find the perfect weird picture or the most dazzling weird design to make each fact jump out at you. Then we put them all together in an amazing-looking book that's so much fun kids can't put it down.
