Overview

Want to stump your parents and amaze your friends? Inside each of these Discovery Kids(tm) pocket-size guides, info-hungry readers will find hundreds of incredible facts and full-color photos on hot subjects-all presented with a fresh approach that's totally kid-oriented. The spine-tingling topics are just what kids want to learn about.

Who wouldn't want to know that a school of piranhas, with their triangular, razor-sharp teeth, can devour an animal the size of a cow in minutes? Or that early castles were equipped with so-called murder holes-openings above the entrance through which boiling oil was poured onto invading soldiers below? Did you know that less than two hundred years ago, the government of Haiti took the problem of zombies so seriously that it passed a law making it an offense to turn someone into a zombie? Or that follicle mites-less than 1/100th of an inch long-like to live at the roots of your hair and eyelashes?

The text in each guide is hip, quirky, and slightly irreverent without compromising the science aspect, so these titles are sure to be a hit even with reluctant readers. On each spread, an extra-credit "Brain Bonus" section gives even more supercool facts. These books are fun to read and easy to carry, fitting right into a pocket or backpack. Kids will love taking them along wherever they go!
