    Loving this book

    I've been reading this book every day since I bought it the middle of January -- and really love it. The drawings are cute and the messages are funny and thought-provoking. There's just enough info every day to read it while getting ready for work in the morning, too.

    It's such a clever concept. I'd like to read more works from this author.

    FunFact book to read and enjoy

    Great, light hearted book to browse through, and gather trivial fun information from. Good quotes, and interesting facts that can be used in conversation, and daily life.
