This is one of the most fun books I've ever read. Bright, colorful and
Curious facts and amusing trivia. What the book lacks in substance, it makes up for with stylish design. Yeah, it's really lightweight, but sometimes we need that. Something quick and zippy hits the spot.

I loved all of the awesome facts that were in here. I think there was one even about Shades of Death Road When I saw it I immediately jumped for joy.

From the National Geographic Society, this is third of a series of books containing weird and quirky facts. It is an easy read for the reluctant reader. Kids love the unusual and quick information found within each page and are eager to recite the information in later conversations.

I like this book just like other series I read. Unuseful fact but interesting, moreover in this book you can see the picture so you can have clearer view of the facts.
