I love reading about weird and wonderful things and the 2020 Guinness World Records had plenty of snippets to keep me occupied. The hardback compendium is beautifully presented with 11 chapters covering Planet Earth, Animals, Human, Recordology, Viral Sports, Spirit of Adventure, Society, Robots, Tech & Engineering, Arts & Media and Sports. My 9 and 11-year-old daughters grabbed the book off me before I could have a look and sat on the sofa. For the next 20 minutes, all I could hear was 'eewwww' or 'oh my' and occasionally lots of giggling.

When I finally got around to looking at the book I found myself lost in the pictures and amazing information. I felt decidedly 'normal' after reading that V Sankaranarayanan from India had collected 736 disposable paper cups or that R Safranek from America has 1,841 Muppet mementos! I could also see why my daughters had gone 'ewww' as the page on fingernails had me dry retching!

What impressed me was that my daughters were still telling me about records they had read days earlier and it even had them wondering if they could break a record. At over 240 pages, this compendium is a keepsake that is a great conversation starter. There are plenty of pictures to accompany the text and it's presented in a way that is easy to read and easy to put down and pick up. This would make for a fabulous gift or a wonderful addition to the coffee table!
