In these thought-provoking, often outrageous but always beautifully crafted stories, you’ll discover why your dog barks, where you cat goes at night and meet the man who learned the science of invisibility.

There are real dragons to be found, whales that sing 1 600-kilometre songs, impossible seeming truths such as, if connected end on end, the DNA in your body could stretch to the sun and back, and the fact that – in speed per body length – a humming bird is faster than the Space Shuttle.

I don't take the world for granted. And the deeper I looked, the stranger it became. What I found will make your head spin.

But be warned, this book are a danger to the world you think you know.
