The Lovereading4Kids comment

Winner of the Blue Peter Book Award 2016 - Best Book with Facts Did you know that at Christmas time in Norway, you should leave a bowl of porridge outside your door - otherwise gnomes will play tricks on you? Or that a beach in Hawaii has green sand? The Epic Book of Epicness will teach you all this and more.

Best Book with Facts winner, Adam Frost, who believes illustrations in books are just as important as words, said: “I'm absolutely delighted to have won. I tried to fill my book with as many bizarre facts and funny pictures as possible. I loved writing it and am over the moon that kids are enjoying it.”

Synopsis

The Epic Book of Epicness by Adam Frost

Pick up this book and just look at what you will find. Crikey! That's dead scary. If all the dead people on earth came back to like as zombies there would be 101 billion zombies in the world. Aagh! Run for your life! Check your worryometer! If you see a tiger shark be very afraid, it will eat you. On the other hand if it's a zebra shark - did you know they don't attack people? Safe! Is there anybody there? Messaging home from outer space can take forever! If you're on Venus, a message sent would reach home in 8 minutes and from Neptune it would take over 4 hours! Better check you're in range. Seeing RED! You'll have to travel all the way to Antarctica to see a red waterfall. It's called Blood Falls and the water is turned red by the element iron. WOW! Top trunks! Find out all the things an elephant does with it's trunk. He would die without it. GAV! GAV! It's barking, literally, a dog bark in Russian. You'll find many of the noises animals make in different languages. WOOF! WOOF! How cool is that!

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
