There are more than just feathered creatures featured in this book of animal trivia, but you'll discover fun facts about chickens, peregrine falcons, and the platypus, plus other critters like sharks and cheetahs.

You'll learn that there are more chickens in the world than any other kind of bird and that when it dives on prey the peregrine falcon can reach an air speed of more than 200 miles per hour.

How about these offbeat facts? A giraffe's tail can reach eight feet in length! Some sharks will lose 30,000 or more teeth in their lifetimes and the bloodhound breed of dog is more than 1,000 years old. You'll also discover which species of shark is only eight inches long.

Not only will the whole family love this book but educators will find this is a very popular classroom title too. You won't have to ask twice if you want youngsters to read Chickens Don't Fly!
