Review by shanaqui
I've been reading non-fiction to relax, lately, which is my excuse for this one. It's aimed at kids, and basically debunks various urban myths like the idea that people swallow eight spiders per year in their sleep. It's very simplistic, but kids would probably enjoy it, and it wasn't bad for me to read in the twenty minutes before bed, either.<br/><br/>Edit: Now I'm reading the QI Book of General Ignorance, I have a feeling this is plagiarised. I'll compare them side by side when I've got chance...
