Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This zany miscellany isn't an ordinary encyclopedia by any measure. It's a collection of crazy, mixed-up, and highly addictive facts for young readers.

Inside, kids will find thousands of strange, interesting, and incredible facts served up in a completely random style, perfect for a generation born net-surfing. Bright, colorful layouts draw the reader into a web of information, and wormholes scattered throughout the text encourage readers to leap from spread to spread.

Design-driven features include:

  • See Saw: A then-and-now box that juxtaposes two events - one from the past, the other from the present
  • Nerd Word: A key science term defined
  • Goof-a-Thon: A mistake with a happy ending. Columbus was aiming for India when he found America
  • Factoid: A little snippet to surprise your brain
  • Stat-o-Sphere: A world of statistics in bubble-shaped bites
  • Flop Ten: The opposite of a top ten and much more fun!
  • Factpile: A stack of facts in which one thing leads to another

Synopsis:

Incredible facts and features pair with innovative design to break the popular reference mold!
