A treasure trove of fun and fantastic facts.

Jam-packed with fascinating information and full of enough facts and trivia to keep any curious child – and their parents – eager to dip in and out for more. Engagingly written and with lovely illustrations, Listified! is an excellent, absorbing book that is also full of fun.

The Independent

Bright, fun and with an absolute ton of information, Listified! is the ultimate “Dip In and Learn Something” book. It has everything you needed to know – and a million things you’d be delighted to discover.

This is a remarkable book to produce in the age of the internet. At a time when almost all knowledge is available to us at the press of a button on a computer, and at a time when knowledge is changing rapidly and is being almost instantly updated online, why produce a book of facts about the world that will be unwieldy, and will quickly go out of date? Perhaps one answer here is that the book is fun. That it is informative is almost secondary to the fun facts and their inspired arrangement as lists.
