This extremely informative book takes a topic that is inherently interesting to kids and presents it in a manner that is both sprightly and nonsensational.... Beyond the 50 questions, which take readers on a worldwide, historical tour, there's even more info in the numerous sidebars that offer anecdotes, games, and embellishments on each question. All this is illustrated in amusing cartoon-style art that isn't afraid to play up what's funny about the subject.--Ilene Cooper"Booklist" (12/15/2011) Suggested for ages nine-plus, but the tone is sufficiently brisk and the material so fun and different, most anyone will enjoy this one.--India Wilson"January Magazine" (12/04/2011) A highly recommended resource for all curious readers who enjoy a good laugh.--Ana Malespin"Resource Links" (12/01/2011)
