This book was so much fun to share with my kids! It is truly more than just a 'bathroom reader' - filled with so many wonderful facts that most people would never even think of, let alone wonder. This book kept us entertained for a very long time, and in just one sitting. It is a great book to just pick up and read randomly - just skip around and pick a page. Even more fun if you read out loud with your family and friends - quite a lot of these 'random facts' are funny and will set you all into a fit of giggles. But, and I assure you, you will also learn a lot. Some may be trivial, but a quite a lot are historical facts that is quite useful information. Definitely a fun way to learn new things. There SO many fun and odd facts! A few of our favorite are: - Creepy Cuisine: "People have been eating strange food since... well, since people first felt hungry. How hungry would you have to be to try some of these delicacies?" page 15. (Ewww... who would have thought to make a meal out of these... things!) - More Gross Stuff: "Essential (but nasty) information about your body." page 119. (And he wasn't kidding, SO gross!) - Travel Guide to Imaginary Lands: "Let Uncle John be your guide to some fantastic places that can only be found in books. Forget the movies - there's nothing like a great novel." page 260. (LOVE that he tells us how to get to Narnia, Never-Never Land and a few other magical places!) And at the bottom of every single page, throughout the entire book, there are additional miscellaneous facts! Like... "Kid power: On average, a child laughs 400 times a day; an adult laughs about 15." page 131 "In one day, your blood will travel nearly 12,000 miles." page 136 "When dogs and humans sleep together, they dream at the same times." page 204 Over 280 pages filled with amazing knowledge - I know that my kids and I will continue to pick this book and read odd bits and will definitely share the knowledge with each other and others too! Definitely a fun book to gift, to all readers and nonreaders! To kids and adult too! We look forward to picking up more of Uncle John's books soon! (I received a hardback from the publisher/tour host for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.)
