Do you know . . .

. . . the symptoms of a venomous spider's bite?
. . . where to find the fastest rollercoasters?

You won't find such an eclectic collection of fascinating facts anywhere else. Whether you want to know how to beat an alligator in a fight, ways to speak in secret code, which insects are edible, or what the heck scolionophobia means, this is the book for readers both young and old.
