Publisher's Summary

This book will keep you entertained! You will discover fun and interestings facts you probably never knew existed! If you've ever shivered at the idea of eating tarantulas or wondered why medieval kings have such odd nicknames, you'll enjoy a trip around the world of weird facts with this fascinating book. 

From weird food to odd funeral customs and from explorers who got lost to misleading translations, the book contains hundreds of intriguing trivia facts. Maybe you want to impress your friends with a wealth of trivia - or maybe, you're just fascinated by strange customs and odd traditions!

This isn't just a roundup of odd facts. It's a treasury of enjoyable stories, some with a humorous turn or a twist in the tale. You'll be disgusted by some of the weird foods covered in the book; amused by Mark Thatcher, lost in the Sahara; captivated by the attempt to conquer the North Pole by balloon; and amazed by the way some Filipinos take their dead relatives out for a walk.

We also introduce you to Columbus, the biggest failure ever, and the wonderfully named Ivailo the Cabbage, King of Bulgaria. You may not be able to get a degree in geography or history with these fun facts - degree courses would be a lot more fun if you could! But this book will take you on a trip around the world and through the centuries that is enthralling and never, ever dull.

Narrator is awful.

Please don't let this woman narrate anything else. She sounds like a high school kid nervously trying to give a presentation in front of the class. I couldn't even get through the first chapter so I honestly can't say if the book is any good.
