These include Out Of This World (Buster Books) which was shortlisted for the prestigious Royal Society Young People's Book Prize and Cool Technology (Scholastic) which won the School Library Association Information Book Award 2013. Clive's titles range from the serious (Robots, The Kingfisher Geography Encyclopedia, Planet Under Pressure: Pollution and Wow! Science) and sporty (with books on the Olympics, football, basketball and skateboarding) to the downright silly (Joy's Annoying Toys, The Huge Rude Duke and The Curse of the Toxic Trousers).

His books have been shortlisted for the TES Information Book of the Year, the Blue Peter Prize and the British Book Awards as well as winning Smithsonian, Children's Choice, NAPPA and PBS awards. Sir Ranulph Fiennes called his latest book on Explorers, "An inspiration to all adventurers." whilst The Guardian declared that his Kingfisher Book Of Football, "was worth a season's training" and the Manchester Evening News labelled it, "The classiest football book around."

Format: Hardcover
Superb use of graphics to explain complex subjects and multiple timelines in an easily accessible manner.

Really love the use of exploded diagrams to deconstruct sealed devices like smartphones and laptops.

Also sad to see the actual author Clive Gifford and the consultant Dr Mike Goldsmith not cited as authors, especially Clive as this shows his diverse talents.

Have bought this for Christmas for my gadget-daft 9 year old. Had a quick flick through and I'm sure it will be a winner. It's packed with loads of information, facts and figures.
