It's a book that I get for my Nephews every year. I found it a great way of getting the boys interested in books when they were about 7 and now they collect them. (the eldest is now 20 and still loves them) Something of interest for them to read about. Always arrives with-in days of order and always well packaged and in good condition.

Bought two, for each of two grandsons (cousins). When they - and others - visit me it seems like
a very long edition of "University Challenge", as they pit their new found knowledge against each other.
Excellent present selection.

What's not to love with the classic Christmas favourite kids book? Nice quality, and no doubt my kids will delight in the endless stream of fun facts and figures that they glean from it. I particularly look forward to being interrupted mid-conversation with utterly unrelated data from my kids. It's a rite of passage.

Been buying GWR every christmas for years and was always given a copy as a child. Its just as good as ever and I love seeing the new whacky things people come up with to get a record.
Although I do get a bit bored of seeing oddballs with piercings, tattoos and long toenails.
Now passing the batton and buying it for my son who gets a lot of joy from it.
As far as the product goes, its big, well printed with loads of records and facts & wonderful pictures. Great quality & value.
The first one was published 62 years ago. Long may it continue.

Bought this for my boyfriends birthday. He was very grateful! As it brought back good memories as he used to get this as a kid.

The book is beautifully presented, with tons of fun facts, including different genres, like sport, animals, food etc.,

It feels good to read again, instead of googling.

Okay, you know what this book is and why you should buy it. I haven't had one since I was a kid and picked one up in a sale. It's great as always as works when the internet fails. Plus none of the information is wrong unlike the internet variety of information.

It's a lovely hardback, buy it in the black friday sale now!
