Four non-fiction topics – bugs, sharks, dinosaurs and the human body – are explored through fun scenarios and a Would you Ratherâ?¬Â¿? question approach. From the revolting eating habits of bugs to the amazing senses of sharks, readers will decide what they'd rather eat, where they'd rather live and what super senses they'd rather have. With no wrong or right answer, there are endless possibilities for discussion and extra facts and notes at the end of book encourage the reader to come up with their own questions.

"The Would You Rather . . . series poses delightfully absurd questions to readers and reveals fascinating (and often disgusting) facts once an answer has been given." - Booklist
