I received an imported American Book...
on 15 February 2013
The copy I received is an American book. This would be great if you're in the States. But I'm not - and I bought this from Amazon UK.
About half the book isn't going to be of interest to my girls. For example theWomen Inventors/scientists section pretty much just features Americans, the patent facts are all American. In the Bird watching section - you're looking out for Blue Jays, American Robins, American Tree Sparrows. There's lots about softball, John Adams, New York Tides, The US Constitution etc etc
I could go on but you get the picture.
Spelling - obviously all US English too.
There has to be a UK edition or this one just wouldn't sell here. Avoid it.
Poor show Amazon.
---- EDIT ----
Thought I take a punt on a secondhand copy (couldn't understand all the 5 star reviews) and got what appears to be a UK edition.
Completely different content and can now understand all the rave reviews.
The UK one has a pale green cover. Make sure you get that one. (You'll probably have to buy it secondhand.)
