Did you know that a great white shark can weigh as much as 15 gorillas? That meteorites the size of basketballs land on Earth about once a month? Kids will devour more than 300 wacky facts in Weird but True! 2—the second installment in a lively new spin-off series from the award-winning National Geographic Kids magazine.

National Geographic Kids is the nation’s largest magazine for children, with more than 1.3 million subscribers and 5 million readers. The brand is rapidly gaining traction in the book market, with the huge success of National Geographic Readers and the National Geographic Kids Almanac. Straight from the pages of the magazine’s top-scoring feature, this little book is chock-full of tremendous fun. It’s packed with even more of the wild-n-wacky facts, whimsical designs, and all-out reading fun that made the first Weird but True volume an early success.

This book’s compact size makes it easy to handle and fun to browse. Eye-popping photos and bold, colorful graphics nab kids’ attention and entice them to read. Brain-bending facts cover a broad range of topics, from science to foods to pop culture and just about everything else under the sun. Kids will have so much fun that they won’t even realize they’re learning.

      This book is definitely recommended for those in search of wacky and weird, yet true, facts! Sure, number three and four have come out, but, older things are nice. I really love national geographic. They give you so much facts! Well, that's all I'm going to say for now!
