See all formats and editions

A polish bear in World War II rose to the rank of colonel. Penguins can't taste fish. The ashes of the man who invented the Pringles container are buried in one one. On Neptune it rains diamonds. 'Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia' is the fear of long words.

These are just 0.1% of all the facts in this incredible tome!

Written by seven authors and covering subjects as diverse as The Universe, Art and Literature, The Natural World and Movies, The Colossal Book of Incredible Facts for Curious Minds is the ultimate trivia book!

Why not amaze family and friends with the reasons pandas do handstands, the sinister source of the term 'rule of thumb', or that the patent for the fire hydrant was destroyed... in a fire. Every entry is weird, wonderful, inspiring and quite brilliantly, true!
