"How can a young reader not pause to pick up any of the It's True!nonfiction series? They have what must surely be the funkiest, attention-grapping titles on any bookshelf loads of utterly fascinating information and trivia delivered in a most engaging flip style. Great fun yet authoritatively researched Cover to cover, they are simply irresistible." Kevin Steinberger, Magpiesvol 20, No. 3, July 2005.
