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!!
This book has kept Harley very entertained, he also likes the facts about the galaxy. 
Brilliant book to engage with your child, we are only a short way through but looking at the activities inside there is always something to fill in. 
Fabulous book

What a great idea for a book! Scarlett chose to review this book as it sounded different to all the activity books she has done in the past. She sais she liked everything about it! Scarlett is at the age where she soaks up facts and loves to read all about them. It was good book because it combined facts and activities about youself. It gets you to think about yourself (and your family) in a different way. For example, 'is your dad smaller or taller than these famous people?' It was great fun to measure daddy an compare his height to Winston Churchill and Jonny Depp. It turns out Scarletts daddy is the same height as Andy Murray! 
Scarlett had been set some homework the week before to write a quiz about something. She discovered a 'dad' quiz so was able to copy the question from the book and make her own dad quiz to take into school! Her friends were very impressed to learn that a seahorse is the only male animal able to give birth!
All in all a great book, its different outlook on an activity book stands it aside from all the sticker books out there. Its nice to find an activity book aimed at older children, a book that combines educational facts with fun!

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. There are quite reasonable activities (writing down name of your school, best friends, favourite subject) to the more unusual (more amusing to my son): drawing tails on cartoon figures to choosing your superpower to describing your Dad ( his dancing, jokes, height etc)  Great fun. We would both recommend it.

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.

My 7 year old really enjoys doing this book. It's great for something different to the usual bedtime story as provokes discussion and quite a few giggles. Hilarious reading back the things he has completed alone as it asks some interesting questions. 
Definitely made me think about broadening my horizons on bedtime stories, nice to have a change and stimulates writing skills and thoughts.

This was a really fun book. I.enjoyed filling it out, answering questions, and drawing things. I liked the interesting facts, it was funny and entertaining. I really liked the jokes pages, and filling in the pages about my dad and my skills. There was lots of different things to fill out and read about which made the book really good. Ive never had a book like this before. Im not very good at drawing, so didnt like the bits where it asked you to draw something. But there wasnt many, it was mainly writing or ticking. And some pages gave you the option to write or draw. I didnt want to put it down once i had started it.

I give this book five stars as it is very funny and extremely creative. I liked the good mix of fonts and the illustrations, and it was a really different type of genre compared to my norm. The challenges were really good, like weighing my Mum's handbag. I would highly recommend this book.

My daughter thought this book was brilliant from the moment she received it.  She loved that it contains lots of facts and information that she keeps telling me about.  But the fact that they get to fill it in by writing information and drawing pictures kept her really engaged.  This is a brilliant idea for a book.

Really good fun! My daughter is 7, but she's an old 7 if that makes sense and just consumes books of all kinds. She laughed so much with this one, it's so interactive, it truly is, the jokes are funny and teaches her some fascinating facts along the way. There are some bits to create and craft outside of the book. She's not completely finished going though it yet and she'll keep returning. Great book, recommended!

My son enjoyed this book as he liked asking questions and filling bits in himself. He showed to some of his friends who we might gift copies for birthdays.
