A great factual book that is divided into sections or chapters, starts with a contents page, ends with an Index and also has a Glossary and for more information sections. The facts included in it range from scientific information through animals and survival to folklore and inventors. It is beautifully illustrated with appropriate images and photographs. All the facts are numbered and, at intervals, there are even quizzes to have a go at. This book is very well presented and well organised for use, encouraging the reader to explore further to discover more about this fascinating topic. Definitely an interesting book to explore and that is likely to appeal to a wide range of readers. Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley for letting me read this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
