The Lovereading4Kids comment

Amaze your friends and family with 100s of astonishing facts, figures, first and lasts ranging from why is 13 unlucky, how do astronauts go to the loo and who had hiccups for 68 years and did you know that the author of this immense tome has a great, great, great, great uncle who invented false teeth? It’s not just fantastic, it’s fact-tastic. The book is based on the Whitaker’s Almanac, which in turn has been published annually since 1868!

Synopsis

Whitaker's World of Facts 2010 by Russell Ash

Whitaker's World of Facts 2010 is full of the most up-to-date, 'must have' information on every important subject on earth, with lashings of fact files, world record-breakers and 'top ten'-style lists - all lavishly illustrated with full colour photographs. It is the biggest and the best! This book is hugely entertaining and informative - it's a superb reference title for all the family. Praise for the first edition includes: Russell Ash is the king of lists, the author of reference books that offer a short cut to pub-quiz stardom. The Independent A Christmas read to dip into again and again. Essential Stuff. The Sunday Times
