5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Book! May 19 2010
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My son chose this book himself at his school book fair. For the last few days, this book has been his constant companion -- and I understand why. The weird but true facts in the book are funnny, interesting, thought provoking, and presented in a dynamic manner with excellent illustrations. My son likes the book very very much, has memorized several of 300 weird but true facts. In fact, we have agreed to give the book away as a gift to several other children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gross but fascinating July 4 2010
By J. deRenzy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is not a book with a plot or anything -- just a list of random weird facts. But my 9 year old finds it FANTASTIC and has read it several times including many of them he insists on reading out loud to us! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars This'll Perk Their Curiosity! May 9 2011
By P. Kingsriter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a rare case of "you CAN judge a book by its cover". Every fact presented in this entertaining and fascinating book IS weird and true. Many pages will leave the reader shaking their heads saying things like, "No way..." or just "Whoa," often wanting to learn more about the amazing statement. One often wishes there was accompanying explanations for the astounding facts, but that'll just have to be research for another day.

There are a few facts per full-color page and the graphics and design are engaging but not distracting. There are a couple of facts more gentle readers might find "gross", but they'll be largely palatable for the average elementary schooler's curious mind.

If you've got a budding explorer, scientist, adventurer, or trivia buff, this would be an excellent and entertaining way to perk their curiosity.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for everyone April 13 2011
By C. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I got this book from the library and it's so inteteresting and I promise there is no way you have heard most of these facts before. I had to buy the book. Did you know, from Earth you always look at the same side of the moon. Or, a newborn kangaroo is about as long as a paper clip. It's fun for the whole family to read together. Highly recommend and it's not crazy expensive.....
