Reviews

"As a reference work this is both valuable and entertaining - a fact nerd's delight. It's worth adding that it supports National Curriculum key stages 2 and 3 - and that it's also a bargain." - Mick Herron, Geographical

"Stuffed with facts, stats and graphics detailing cool and fascinating facts about planet Earth, questions such as What are the chances of being killed by a coconut? are answered vividly and, most importantly, visually. We love it." - How It Works
