An amazing collection of extraordinary facts of all kinds and from all places jostle together in this well-packed book to create a deep mine of useless – and useful information!


Why You Need a Passport When You're Going to Puke by Mitchell Symons

This work lets you discover where a three-headed turtle was discovered in 1999, where the first toothbrush was invented, which country has summer as the only season and where you can buy square watermelons! It is guaranteed to have young readers hooked for hours.


Mitch knows more totally useless things about useless subjects that anybody on Earth Chris Tarrant
