Everyone smells! The sense of smell plays a crucial part in survival, communication, and taste, and is the basis of a multi–billion–dollar industry. But, despite all this, it's the sense we often know least about.
This hilarious and fact–packed book puts that right. Find out everything you could ever want to know about stinks, whiffs and pongs, from the fruit so pungent it's banned from public transport to the top–secret military program developing the stinkiest stink bomb.
You'll get up close and personal with the world's biggest stinkers, from peeing pandas to toxic–breathed kings. You'll learn how smells have helped to build empires and bring down entire cities, and how super–stinky inventions are still changing our world.
- A surprising, scientific and very silly look at your smelliest sense, packed with pungent facts!
- Find out about flowers that smell like rotting flesh, meet professional armpit sniffers, and discover how space smells (like rotten eggs and almonds)!
