The Round the World Quiz Book

Can you take on the world? Challenge family and friends to more than 500 tricky and fascinating questions about our amazing world.

"What a fantastic book which really involves all ages.  My 5 year old was so pleased to be able to answer some of the easier questions and some of the facts were fascinating.  Definitely a book we will keep referring to over time and very highly recommended for all members of the family, young and old!" (I read it to Ragdollkhanbaby aged 5)

"SO MANY FACTS!! My (almost) 7 year old absolutely loved testing us on the questions and facts in this book.  He has already learnt a lot, and has found it really interesting and enjoyable.  I like the layout inside the book (although it took us a little while to find the answers sections, but don't worry, they are there!) and I think the picture to text ratio is great." (joshgok read it aged 6)

"This book is fab - really colourful and jammed packed with questions and quizzes.  What's particularly good is that the questions and activities are split into 3 levels newbie, rookie and genius.  Even my 5 year old can do some of the newbie tasks whereas the genius questions had the adults scratching their heads in some instances." (I read it to LucasChops aged 5)

"My little boy hasn't put this book down since he got it! Safe to say he is more than happy. The activities in the book are brilliant, Harley has loved asking me questions to figure out if I'm a 'cool mum' and yes I was!!" (Hsmith read it aged 7)

"Highly recommend this book. Since getting it my son has looked at it every day. He loves the activities and quizzes for all the family. He also loves the fact he can write in it. There are some interesting facts too". (Harry04 read it aged 9)

"My son has thoroughly enjoyed this activity book. There are lots of things to do in it: from working out what is the equivalent weight of my handbag (My son wrote a 'brick'.) to ticking the activities that you can do (swimming strokes, forward rolls etc) to colouring in your favourite ice cream. Great fun. We would both recommend it. (rsa read it aged 7)

"The Lonely Planets Kids series is outstanding, and I have yet to see a book from it that is not excellent. This one is no exception, and does not disappoint. What makes this different from other books in the series is that instead of teaching about countries around the world, it focuses on what you can find right on your doorstep."
