National Trust: Ned the Nature Nut's Nutty Nature Facts and Jokes

Publisher: Nosy Crow / The National Trust

Review

What has 100 legs but no sense? A sillipede! What do clouds put on after a shower? Thunderwear! And did you know that Britain has several poisonous wild plants including hemlock, wolfsbane and deadly nightshade? Or that the Latin name for the large garden bumblebee is bombus ruderatum? Yes! It’s true. Bee-ly.

Ned the Nature Nut is our guide through this collection of wildlife facts, puns and jokes, with black-and-white pen and ink-style illustrations by Sarah Horne.

Ideal for dipping in and out, young readers will love the combination of fascinating facts and the silliness too.
