This volume of trivia contains topics that children will find fascinating, disgusting, and, well, just plain weird. The information is presented in bite-sized chunks, just enough to peak the reader's interest and give them a little something to chew on. There are links throughout the book to related web sites for further exploration and the graphic content of the book is outstanding. Readers looking for something a little offbeat will find a trove of interesting tidbits in this book.
Facts can be as exciting--and as weird--as the wildest fantasy, and each double-page spread in this small title is packed with experiments and information about bizarre science, from meteorites and spontaneous combustion to clothes that make you invisible.... This [book] provides plenty of fodder for discussion, including the need to keep an open mind; and each spread includes a Web site, directing readers to more awe-inspiring science information.--Hazel Rochman"Booklist" (12/01/2009)
