FACTopia! Summary

FACTopia!: Follow the Trail of 400 Facts [Britannica] by Kate Hale

Welcome to FACTopia! A wonderland of crazily connected facts. Did you know that a squid has a brain shaped like a doughnut? Or that some butterflies drink turtle tears? Every Britannica-verified fact in the book is connected to the next in an ingenious trail of information. Hop from topic to topic in unexpected and hilarious ways, and discover extraordinary facts about space, bones, dinosaurs, goats, spiders, crocodiles, sharks, robots, Ancient Rome, kings and queens, pharaohs, and more. But there's not just one trail through these pages: sometimes your path branches and you can choose to jump to a totally different (but still connected) part of the book. Discover where your curiosity will take you! This wittily illustrated book is the perfect gift to inspire and delight curious kids.

Choose your own path through a wonderland of amazing, exciting and sometimes downright silly facts in this brilliant new book.

* The Week Junior Science + Nature *

There's something for everyone in this compelling and highly readable mini-encyclopedia. This brightly illustrated small hardback is an ideal resource for children to dip into.

-- Tom Tolkien * The School Reading List *

This coruscating cornucopia of extraordinary facts is truly a fun and fact-filled reading adventure.

-- Pam Norfolk * Lancashire Evening Post *

Pupils can choose their own path through this dazzling world of information ... In a world of misinformation, it's great to know that the 400 facts in this book have been verified by Encyclopaedia Britannica. With more than 300 witty illustrations and photos, and topics from space and dinosaurs to volcanoes and pharaohs covered, there should be something here for everyone.

* Teach Primary Magazine *

A wonderful compendium of facts ... The book will surprise you and fascinate you. Fantastic fun for curious children aged 8+.

-- Brenda Marshall * The English Association *
