"100 Most Exciting Things On The Planet" is a book similar to "100 Most Disgusting Things On The Planet", so when I saw the book I was eager to start reading it and see how it differed from the last book. The cover looked awesome, the pictures made me want to look inside the book so that I could see what they were about.
The info was great, I learned some stuff that I found rather interesting, like the fact that the fastest speedboat in history was home-made, and that there is a real underwater city in Jordon, a city in Egypt.
The facts in this book were also rather useful, now I know about some things to look out for, like Monarch Butterfly migrations, and places I want to visit, like the Palm Islands in Dubai. I would recommend this book for people 7 years and up since there isn't any violence or bad language, and there are a lot of things young kids can learn from this book.
I recon the author, Anna Claybourne, did a good job on her second book, it was better than the last one since it didn't make you want to puke your guts out, and it was much, much more interesting.
If you want to know about the coolest things on the planet, then this book is for you, it's so cool, your fingers might freeze if you pick it up (just kidding!).
Random listing from 'Books'...
The Auckland Harbour Bridge is under construction. Simon likes watching the bridge being built, and talking to his uncle and his mates about what's happening on site.
Meanwhile, Simon's best friend Marty is obsessed with the Space Race and younger sister Jo can't stop worrying about the fate of the dogs and monkeys that are the world's first space travellers.
Everyone says that life on the North Shore will change once the bridge is finished... but what does that mean for Simon and his family?
