Publisher Comments:

Announcing Fandex Round Three - critical mass. The newest break-through in user-friendly, information-packed, in fun-for-the-whole-family publishing. Fandex now boasts 12 titles. From nature guides like Trees and Birds to cultural decks, including Presidents and Mythology, to pure unexpected gifts - Cats, Dogs - there's a Fandex to appeal to all interests. New for Spring are four titles. Wildflowers: large, bright die-cuts - often as big as the flower or even bigger - and true-to-life colors make this a foolproof way to identify 47 of North America's wildflowers. The Body: a stunning visual and factual tour of the systems, organs, muscles, and bones that make us tick, by the writer of the award-winning CD-ROM program A.D.A.M. Explorers: Columbus spying the New World, Balboa beholding the Pacific, Neil Armstrong setting foot on the moon - it's all the world's greatest explorers, from the Phoenicians to the present. Composers: a chronological history of composers and their music, with intriguing facts, anecdotes, and musical insights into composers from Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven to Gershwin and Bernstein, together with other composers who form the Western musical canon. For kids who are learning it all for the first time, and grown-ups who want to get it straight, Fandex puts knowledge at your fingertips. In full-color

It's every history lover's handheld deck of knowledge.
