Bloomsbury presents World-Whizzing Facts by Emily Grossman, read by Emily Grossman.

In this new audiobook, TV science expert Dr Emily Grossman answers incredible and important questions about our natural world. You’ll find out silly things like why some animals do square-shaped poos and which direction a dog is likely to face while weeing, but you’ll also learn what climate change and wildlife loss are actually doing to our planet and what you can do to help.

Covering a diverse range of key science topics, from human biology and animals and plants to the weather and space, Dr Emily shows listeners why Earth is so weird and wonderfully great. Did you know there's a planet in our solar system where it actually rains diamonds? Imagine that! If you lived there, you'd always be picking them out of your hair, your pockets and probably your pants!

Dr Emily also tackles Earth's biggest problem: climate change. Through clear, sensitive explanations, you’ll find out what is actually happening to our Earth and what this means for both humans and wildlife - and what we can all do to help!

Written by TV science expert, STEM ambassador and advocate for women in science Dr Emily Grossman, this audiobook will make your eyebrows rise, your jaw drop and your world whizz! It will also give you hope about our future and how we can all make a difference.
