Welcome to FACTopia!, a wonderland of crazily connected facts.
Choose your own path through this hilarious world of 400 facts, all of which are verified by Encyclopaedia Britannica. Every fact in the book is connected to the next in an ingenious trail of information.
Did you know that a squid has a brain shaped like a doughnut? Or that some butterflies drink turtle tears? Hop from topic to topic in unexpected and delightful ways, and discover what connects a giraffe with the Eiffel tower, or a slice of pizza with Cleopatra. On your awe-inspiring journey, you will find out extraordinary facts about space, bones, dinosaurs, spiders, sharks, robots, ancient Rome, and more.
And 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. Who knows where your curiosity will take you!
This wittily illustrated book is the perfect gift to inspire and delight curious children.
"Free association rules in this gathering of hundreds of facts about science, technology, and the natural world.....Readers with attention spans on the short side may indeed find plenty of, as Hale promises, "mind-blowing, wow-worthy and crazily cool" facts....A real browsers' buffet." - Kirkus Reviews

This is a fun fact book for kids (and adults!). There are a whopping 400 facts that are uniquely linked to the next in many different categories. There were a lot of fun facts I have never heard before. Some facts are from an evolutionist's standpoint versus a creationist's standpoint. There are ton of great photos and illustrations. This will keep any curious child (or adult!) Busy for hours.
ever want your kid to read facts.. this will call to them!! the table of contents is not traditional and it covered in colors each page is illustrated and would be ideal for n early middle school reader unless you have a more advanced reader! Tis was fun and quirky!
