Philip Ardagh's Book Of Absolutely Useless Lists For Absolutely Every Day Of The Year by Philip Ardagh

Filled with incredible facts and figures, this book contains a list for every day of the year. The list includes: six of the world's smelliest cheeses, eight theories that are impossible to prove, five animals that look like something else, four Runners-up who became more famous than the actual winners, eight different types of hat, and more.

About the Author

Philip Ardagh

Philip Ardagh was our Guest Editor in May 2010. Click here to see the books that inspired him.

Philip Ardagh, whose very first Grubtown Tale won him the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, is author of numerous books including the award-winning Eddie Dickens adventures, which have been translated into over 30 languages.

He wrote BBC Radio’s first truly interactive radio drama, collaborated with Sir Paul McCartney on his first children’s book and is a ‘regularly irregular’ reviewer of children’s books for the Guardian. Married with a son, he divides his time between Tunbridge Wells and Grubtown, where he cultivates his impressive beard.

And if your children love Grubtown then do get them to go to www.visitgrubtown.com

Drawing on the weird and wonderful characters and settings from the Grubtown books, visitgrubtown.com features six distinct Grubtown locations – including the Daily Herald newspaper office, the Duckhouse/Museum and Smoky’s cinema. The site incorporates fun audio and video - what more could you ask for!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
