Learn something about everything with 13 mind-blowing facts plus a little myth-buster about every topic under (and including) the sun! Exploded images of everyday objects from cars and skeletons to pianos and chocolate take young readers on an incredible factual adventure. Did you know that one in every four animals on earth is a beetle? That white chocolate isn't technically chocolate? Or that the planet Pluto is so small that two could sit side-by-side across the USA? 131/2 Incredible Things You Need to Know About Everything includes over 1000 facts on 80 different subjects to satisfy a child's thirst for knowledge. Familiar objects - the Earth, a tiger, an Apollo spacesuit, a scorpion - are exploded to reveal their extraordinary insides. Surprising myth-busters give children a wealth of new favourite facts, such as chameleons change colour to stand out not blend in and that sharks only kill 6 people a year while people kill 100 million sharks a year! Awesome images will draw young readers into 131/2 Incredible Things You Need to Know About Everything and irresistible information will keep them there.

This is such an interesting book for children and adults alike. Great, colourful illustrations and facts about many different topics. It's printed on high quality paper and is a hardcover so easy for kids to hold. I enjoyed reading this as much as my grandson did. I would recommend this for kids of all ages as there are so many different facts (and myth busters!)

This book is lovely and colourful with lots of bite size facts for children to enjoy. It is easy for the kids to dip in and out of and flick through to see what catches their attention. As it is hardback, it is very robust as well.

Mum: This is an excellent book for all primary aged school children. Each two page spread deals with one particular area and is filled with bright, colourful, large illustrations. The facts are broken down into fourteen sections (numbered 1 -13 1/2 ). It is a book to dip in and out of, otherwise you might get a little overwhelmed by the amount of 'incredible things' here.

My son: This is absolutely amazing. There is so much in it. My favourite parts are Ocean Depths, Amazing Amphibians and Mythical Beasts.

DK Books have done it again, another blockbuster book packed with the most incredible information about the most spectacular amount of topics. It doesn’t just give you a top 10 of facts, oh no you get 13 1/2 with the half fact being a misconception or half-truth that you may have heard and it in its place it gives you the actual TRUTH! Awesome photography meets fabulous facts in this comprehensive and entertaining guide to information. Who wouldn’t want to know everything about shark attacks, moon suits, stealthy stingers to name just a few. If you have a child who can’t get enough of facts then this is the book for them, a real treasure trove of mind blowing curiosities.
