Pick Me Up Put Me Down by David Roberts
Once you pick me up, you won't want to put me down...
I'm an encyclopedia, but not as you know it. Big books with facts are boring - I'm not. I'm more like a computer game than a book, crammed with funky pages and cartoons.
Forget A-Z, just follow my lead and you'll be amazed where you end up! Was Beethoven a punk? Why is 10 to the power of 100 called a googol? How are smelly feet connected to nuclear weapons? I've got it all covered.
Read me in bed, read me on the bus, or even in the loo! Just pick me up - go on. I'm exciting, I'm addictive - I'm unputdownable! Curious? Try me!
