Amusing facts about animals, science, culture, history, and technology appear alongside related activities, invitations to doodle and color, and stickers in this lively visual tour of Earth and beyond. Each "weird but true" fact appears in bold display type ("The U.S. Navy built a robot that swims and looks like a shark"), accompanied by eye-catching photographs and other illustrations integrated with mazes, crossword puzzles, and Mad Libs-style games; for the robo-shark spread, readers are asked to draw ideas for how to defend a coral reef. The diversity of activities should make the book particularly conducive to road-trip reading and sharing with friends. Ages 8-12. (Sept.)Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, LLC Used with permission.
