“Lively and up-to-date facts about life on planet Earth, mixing genuinely useful reference data with fun facts, figures and trivia … An encyclopaedia for the online generation.”
– Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian

“As a reference work this is both valuable and entertaining – a fact nerd’s delight. It’s worth adding that it supports National Curriculum key stages 2 and 3 – and that it’s also a bargain.”
– Mick Herron, Geographical Magazine

“Stuffed with facts, stats and graphics detailing cool and fascinating facts about planet Earth, questions such as “What are the chances of being killed by a coconut?” are answered vividly and, most importantly, visually. We love it.”
