Nose Knows

Lift the flaps to take a fresh sniff at the world from an animal’s perspective – all you have to do is follow your nose!

Wild Ways Animals Smell the World

Learn all about different animals’ noses and how they smell, and how they use their sense of smell and scent! You can even discover which animal has the best sense of smell!

Lift up the flaps to find out how rabbits, giraffes, snails, clown fish, lions, dogs, bees, and more use their noses and their sense of smell! You’ll be amazed at how they find family or food, leave messages for friends and warn away rivals all using their scent.

"The ‘lift the flaps’ were great fun, but also very informative and they certainly added to the interest of the book … The illustrations are also wonderful and, in fact, make this book something of a showpiece. The drawings are fun, yet accurate and life-like, adding to the educational value of the book. I would certainly give this as a gift for a birthday or Christmas, to any budding little scientist or lover of animals. All in all a hugely successful read and one that I will revisit again and again when teaching the children about our senses in science."

Carolyn Swain, English 4-11 Picture Books Editorial Board

“In this fascinating book the reader is invited to ‘take a fresh sniff at the world from an animal’s perspective’ and explore the different roles that a sense of smell plays in shaping animal behaviour and relationships … Supported by full-colour illustrations, the reader’s interest is further sustained through the use of flaps which when lifted often reveal surprising facts … This book sits comfortably in a primary classroom and has the potential to generate some interesting discussions. There is just the right amount of detail and scientific vocabulary and the layout breaks the information into appropriate sized chunks. A welcome addition to any non-fiction library.”

Lancashire Evening Post

"Wonderfully entertaining and informative...An ingenious, interactive way of learning that is not to be sniffed at."

The School Librarian (SLA)

"While sharing fascinating facts about the animal kingdom and answering such questions as why female mosquitoes are so attracted to our skin, this engaging book is also likely to stimulate many readers' natural curiosity to find out more"
