Packed with hilarious illustrations and great facts that will have you rushing to share them with others, this is the book to help you laugh at the world around you. Whether you want to find out about far-flung places, or a little more about your own patch, Horrible Geography drops facts as quickly as jokes. This fantastic series of books brings geography to life, while quizzes, puzzles and activities keep boredom at bay.
