Middle-grade kids are fiends for facts, statistics, and trivia, so this book will be pored over and shared enthusiastically by them. Looking inside and behind things will yield the kind of detail kids search for and want in a book like this.

Lots of surprises for kids and adults alike about the origins of common and not-so-common items we now take for granted. Some facts are funny, some are straightforward, some are downright unbelievable
