This is the British historian's latest collection of fascinating facts for young people. It's a large collection, covering such topics as the origins of toilets and of phrases such as "wet your whistle," physical and biological phenomena, elements of popular culture, and the behavior of animals, including humans. The content is eclectic, with no discernable organization or narrative flow. It's an audio encyclopedia, perhaps aimed at listeners who want to be entertained in short spurts. Stig Wemyss is a talented reader whose skills would serve any audio intended for children. Putting life into every sentence, he stirs interest in every topic covered.
