Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The books in this "1000 Things You Should Know About" series consist of a somewhat random collection of facts scattered throughout colorful, attractively arranged pages. Originally published in Great Britain, the books present ten facts and a photograph for each of the one hundred topics that are covered in any volume. The pages resemble computer screens, perhaps an attempt to attract the eye of avid Internet surfers. The Science volume reduces such topics as space and nuclear power to ten factoids. The pages jump from one disjointed subject to another; buoyancy and electronics appear on the same page, for example. The information in the Human Body volume is similarly scattered. It includes some useful diagrams, such as the entry on the cell. The Buildings and Transportation volume has a few interesting topics, such as hovercraft, but again is jarringly disjointed as it jumps from vehicles to castles. All have indexes, but often an entry will lead to one sentence that does not really provide much information. Because the data is so skimpy, this reviewer cannot see these books being very useful as reference sources. They might serve as entertaining browsing titles, similar to the Guinness Book of World Records, for readers who like common knowledge trivia. The writing style is aimed at an upper-elementary to middle-school-age reading level. Some of the graphics are well done, but not nearly as nice as a DK publication. The series, which also includes books on animals, space, and planet Earth, is not an essential purchase. Index. Illus. Photos. VOYA Codes: 2Q 3P M J (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q; Will appeal with pushing; Middle School, defined as grades 6to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9). 2003 (orig. 2000), Mason Crest, 64p.
