description {

Cool stuff to know about every country in the world. Everyone knows which is the world's highest mountain, but do you know which country banned chewing gum? Or what's the world's stinkiest fruit? Or who invented roller skates? Or which building leans more than the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Or where can you eat fried spiders as a snack?

At Lonely Planet they decided to make a book about the world's countries for children, not parents.

The world is a very big place, and in The Not-for-Parents Travel Book they've concentrated on the really interesting bits to create a snapshot of what each country is like. (Warning to parents: these might not be the same "really interesting bits" that you like...where to buy coffee, how many stars the hotel has, what's the phone number for the airport, blah, blah, blah.)

In this book are the epic events, amazing animals, hideous histories, funky foods, and crazy facts that make the world's 200 countries so fascinating. Each country has a page to itself - so tiny Tuvalu gets as much space as superpower USA.
