Review: Absolutely Everything!

This chatty, funny, fast-paced and intelligent book is one for all ages - although technically it’s for 10 - 14 year-olds. It’s exactly the kind of book that adults wish they’d had when they were a kid.

With a welcome mix of remarkable true stories and facts, the revised and expanded version of Absolutely Everything contains a wealth of information to leave you spell-bound. 

A feast for the eyes and brain, this book gets in your ear about random and interesting things - like the interconnections between science, history and the nature of planet earth. And all are broached in the most wonderful, accessible ways.

Eye-catching photos, illustrations, stories and information by the truckload will spark curiosity and elicit interesting conversation. Covered are topics from the Big Bang and ancient civilizations (with the requisite dinosaurs and early humans), through to technology and recent pandemics and wars.

Colour tabs allow you to visually mark where you’re at, and the thoughtful layout, sensibly-sized font and generous white space encourage readers to move through the pages  with ease. 

Indulge yourself with this wonderful, engaging guide!
