The Lovereading4Kids comment

Think 21st century humans have explained pretty much everything there is to explain? Think again! As this book demonstrates, there’s still a huge amount of stuff we simply don’t understand. It takes 100 mind-boggling puzzles – mysterious ancient monuments, haunted castles and paranormal mysteries, scientific conundrums - and examines them rigorously, clear passages of text and attractive photographs and illustrations providing lots of information on each one. Each topic is given its own unexplained rating, from “Not quite as strange as it seems” to “Mind-bogglingly mysterious!!!” It’s the kind of book that kids will find really easy to dip into, and very hard to put down. ~ Andrea Reece
