Editorial Reviews

Birmingham News - Susan Swagler
A hodgepodge of fun and useful information.
Chicago Sun-Times - Henry Kiso
Amiable compendium... colorful illustrations are simple but effective, and so are the step-by-step instructions.
Grand Rapids Press - Ann Byle
This unique book is so full of wacky facts and bizarre information that you'll despair of ever grasping it all, but that's part of the fun... perfect for anyone, young and old, who loves trivia.
Richmond Times-Dispatch - Ann Lloyd Merriman
Provocative... a storehouse of useful information here, as well as some not quite so useful — but you never know.
Calgary Herald - Pamela Klaffke
Kids and adults will enjoy the vast range of strange (and sometimes useful) facts... the ultimate how-to book... an entertaining reference for anyone interested in, well, anything and everything.
Natural History
Full of oddball practical tips... dubious historical information... outdated social etiquette... and tricks of various kinds... All this esoterica is punctuated by full-size game boards for obscure games and instructions for playing them.
Toronto Star
Skim'n'skip curio is perfect... for long sojourns on the john.
Taylor Sunday News Herald - Linda Baum
The Ripley's-esque illustrations on every page make it all the more enjoyable. This my favorite type of book to recommend to reluctant readers because it will hold everyone's attention.
