The average racing book gives you statistics and information about racehorses, racecourses, trainers and jockeys; tells you about riding a Derby or Grand National winner, becoming champion jockey, backing loads of winners, and how beautiful horses are. Graham Sharpe's latest racing book will tell you how Winston Churchill rode in a fixed race; how Henry Cecil's house was used as a cannabis factory; that Jenny Pitman's husband's pet name for her is 'Waggle Bum'; and how the burglar who raided and robbed John McCririck's house then rang him up to taunt him. These, and literally hundreds of other strange stories about racing make up the perfect companion volume to Sharpe's best-selling 500 Strangest Racing Stories. In fact, no-one with even a passing interest in the Sport of Kings will be able to resist delving into the pages of Kiwis, Canaries and Monkeys to discover just how deeply odd, nay strange, the world of racing can be. As well as kiwis, canaries and monkeys there are tales of bulls, whales, dogs, pigs, seagulls, locusts and many more getting mixed up with racing what more could anyone wish for in a racing book?
