This big book is stuffed with the fastest, brightest, longest, funniest, weirdest, wildest, wettest, saddest, brainiest, and fascinating-est (yikes!) things in the world. From the highest peaks to the murkiest depths, the fastest man to the slowest sloth, the oldest lake to the most venomous snake and much, much more.
Writing is more fun if you live in interesting places. Jan Payne and husband Tony have lived on a houseboat on the Thames - on an island in Scotland and at the moment in a farmhouse in France. For a while they ran a children's pop-up card company called Payne Family Cards. Tony did all the clever stuff - the designing, the paper engineering and sometimes even the printing - and Jan made the tea. For the last few years they have concentrated on writing stories for children. Simple stories like Plummet and The Hippo-NOT-amus for very young children. Funny stories, like Not Again Annie, for children who are a little bit older. And for children who are almost grown up and don't want to feel left out, Tony is in the middle of writing a fantastical science fiction adventure which is funny and exciting at the same time. Nowadays, Jan still makes the tea - but often helps out with the writing as well. She has just written the World's Best Book. Seriously!
