This was hilarious and also factual and interesting in equal measure - (but mainly hilarious). It read with the same light, easy tone as the footnotes that appear throughout his Pirate novels.

I don't know if it's because we have a remarkably similar set of cultural references or because we are "of an age" but Gideon Defoe can make me laugh and laugh. He's got to be, in my opinion, the funniest writer since Wodehouse. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0297851128, Hardcover)

From Giant Panda porn-watching evenings to the often inaccurate firing of love darts from the common garden snail. From the frenzied mating bundles formed by snakes lucky enough to have two penises, to the unlucky female bean weevil who has to put up with the spiked and barbed protuberance of her mate, this beautifully illustrated and hilariously informative manual will broaden your mind and make you look upon Mother Nature's achievements with new-found respect. Filled with little-known scientific facts (and fantastic top trumps tables listing copulation frequency and duration, relative penis to body size, interesting anatomical quirks, and remarkable 'did you know' anecdotes), written with a delightfully humorous tone and illustrated with 50 colour photographs this is the perfect stocking filler for anyone and everyone who's ever wondered what went on inside the ark.
