Odd Science – Incredible Creatures

Hardback

Odd Science: Incredible Creatures is filled with weird and wacky facts – read about the dinosaur that used camouflage, wonder at the penguins that ‘propose’ to each other with rocks and tell your friends that the dodo was actually quite smart!

Prepare to laugh, marvel and learn.

Scientists found that cockatoos in Australia make their own drumsticks and their own music. Each bird plays it’s own different rhythm at its own different speed to attract a mate.

Scientists in Tokyo have trained pigeons to distinguish between art style. They can tell the difference between works by Picasso and Monet.

There are facts about sharks that listen to Death Metal, the amazing amount a hummingbird needs to eat, and strange creatures such as the ‘ghost’ octopus.

James Olstein beautifully illustrates these odd facts in a retro-inspired, quirky style. His designs aren’t meant to be taken literally, but you’ll laugh-out-load when you see a spider relaxing on a pool float and dinosaurs playing with a ball!

Being a geek has never been so cool.
