Book Description: How strange it is! Kids will go crazy over every wacky, sometimes icky, always entertaining fact in this brand-new Little Giant compilation. The topics range from food to customs, animals to history, nature to sports. For example, in Marostica, Italy, an immense chess board is built into the public square: the pawns and all the pieces are human beings, and the knights sit on real horses! Or how about this: Maine actually has a law that prohibits anyone from stepping out of a plane while it's in the air. From weird worms that stop island natives in their tracks to 4000 year old bathrooms with modern drainage systems, each tidbit of information is truly a treat.
