Reviews

'Mary K put a rucksack on her back, travelled and photographed the world so you don't have to! The result is her new Fantastic Far Flung Facts For Fun book. Inside, you can find out ...why hippos never pooh in the river, why flamingos are pink, how to survive a crocodile charge - and much, much more.'

'Packed with photos, illustrations, maps and stories, Fantastic far Flung Facts For Fun is a great read for kids.'
