4.0 out of 5 stars Many good facts, but not so engaging to read
By Ryott on June 22, 2019
The title of my review might sound contradictory, but this is exactly what I found out with this book: it has many great facts, but somehow neither I or my 7 year old son (who LOVES fact books) ever feel like reading. I think the book's main problem is that it tries to provide so many facts that it becomes difficult to approach.

As an example, look at the facts about sharks. It is so much information, with so small font, that I feel like I am reading a prescription drug disclaimer. Yes, fact 33 about sharks, "Port Jackson sharks use their flattened teeth to feed on shellfish and sea urchins" might be a very interesting fact for other people, but by the time I get to that line I really could not care less. Fact 39, "Far more people are killed each year by dogs, elephants, and bess than by sharks!" is way more interesting. I probably would have preferred that fact to have way more space, and a picture of a puppy next to a shark. Now I would be entertained!

Not every page is like this, though. As a good example, the "25 Red Hot Facts" page shows mixture of small facts that are interesting and well illustrated. Knowing that the Sahara is almost as big as USA is definitely interesting. And call me simple, but having a picture of the desert enhances the whole feeling of reading the book.

I think I would have preferred this book to be "500 awesome facts" and have just a selection of facts, with better illustrations. Overall, I still rate it 4-stars just due to the effort they put to collect all the information, and just the massive amount of information on it; but I would like if I said we read it often.
