Did you know that archeologists have tasted the honey found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs? This led some to think it is the only food that would never go bad. Or that the only continent with no snakes or other reptiles is Antarctica? How about this one, the only country where cows have the same rights as people is India. Bet you also did not know about the secret members of you favorite bands huh? Well, during some concerts, other musicians play backstage out of sight. It's a clever way of making the bands sound more impressive. You have got to check out this book, called Pick Me Up: Stuff You Need to Know created by David Roberts and Jeremy Leslie. So go ahead, do as it says. Pick it up and you won't want to put it down. You definitely need to know this stuff for yourself and you can also impress everyone around you. It is full of interesting facts about famous people, buildings, countries, trains, music, art, games and so much more.
For grades four and up.
