Hi, I'm Mike! I love a good quiz. I like the chance to flash some facts about and look smart. Well, at least until the quizmaster gives out the correct answers.

That's one reason why working on our new book with ace illustrator Jess Bradley has been such a blast - I've been able to bombard my brain with some fab new facts.

(Plus, of course, it's always a hoot to work on a book with 'Poo' in its title!)

Anyway, thanks to all the research I did digging up the information to include in the book, my brain has gone from this...

... to this...

... and is now bulging with a treasure trove of fabulously funny trivia. For example, I know which is the only animal to do cube-shaped poos...

... I also know another name for the gnu...

... Not to mention all the stunning stuff I've picked up about hearts, farts, nuts, guts, rocks, clocks, worms, germs, trees, bees, wees, and much, much more!

Everything under the sun, in fact...

Anyway, you can learn all this cool stuff too, simply by picking up A Day in the Life of a Poo, a Gnu, and You, and looking - and laughing - through it! But first, why not take this fun quick quiz to test how much - or how little - you already know?

Go on! It won't take all day, and it's guaranteed to brighten up your life!

So, brains in gear and let's get going. We're going to quiz you on a week's worth of questions, seven in total, one for each day of the week. All the answers can be found in the book, or at the end of the quiz. But remember, A Day in the Life... includes skunks, sloths and porcupines, but there are no cheetahs! (Geddit?)

So, here we go...
