Bloody facts

This book is all about blood. Why is it so important? Can it really be true that a single person has 100,000 kilometres of blood vessels inside them?

This book provides the answer to that and much, much more. You’ll also learn why children get more nosebleeds than adults, and that some things actually have blue blood. Not royalty, though – shrimp and squid! Here you can also read about menstruation, about what blood means in different religions, about blood in food, and about vampires and mosquitoes and other blood-sucking animals.

Bloody Facts is a book for readers who like a few crazy facts.

The book is accompanied by the vibrant illustrations of Jenny Jordahl.
