Woolly mammoths and saber-toothed tigers are two of the animals Yeti fails to find in Beanotown woods… or are they?

Beano 4176: Cloudy with a chance of menace!

1. March the 14th is Pi Day!

Well… if you write it in the US date format of 3.14. And Rubi’s very excited! While for Pie face, March the 14th is Pie Day, but that because for Pie Face, EVERY DAY is Pie Day!

2. The Numskulls learn a new word…

…with all sorts of unexpected consequences. The word? ‘Non-sequitur’, pronounced ‘sec-wit-ur’. And it’s not like Brainy even listens to words that are easier to say!

3. It’s all Greek to the Bash Street Kids!

The kids are learning all about Greek mythology this week, which means history is about to get hysterical for Class 2B!

4. JJ wants her mummy!
