Philip Ardagh's Book of Absolutely Useless Lists for Absolutely Every Day of the Year
This is a brilliant, chunky book packed with incredible facts and figures. It contains a list for every day of the year. Here are a few examples of the things you can expect to learn about: six paintings that look better from a distance, three most likely places to find Tyrannosaurus Rex remains, six of the world's smelliest cheeses, eight theories that are impossible to prove (or disprove), five animals that look like something else (and what they look like), eleven of the world's most poisonous plants, four Runners-up who became more famous than the actual winners, five garments most commonly lost in laundrettes, twelve inventions that bankrupted their inventors, and much, much more.

What it says on the box - a book of silly lists. I'm not entirely sure who the target group is but almost certainly older children and the young at heart. Mildly entertaining Read full review
Jump into the world of Philip Ardagh and his book of Absolutely useless lists.The author of this hilarious book is by the amazing
Philip Ardagh,for every day of the year, including leap year is an aparently useless list. But some of them are really interesting and some are really funny.
Expect the unexpected in this ridiculously named, reassuringly chunky book, jam-packed full of eye-openingly amazing facts, lies, half-truths.
