What the Fact?!: A Daily Trivia Almanac of 365 Strange Days in History
by Gabe Henry Author
One little-known tidbit of historical trivia is briefly and vividly put on display for your pleasure and fascination for every day of the year, some of them illustrated in an old news-magazine style. The snippets of history are tidily and vivaciously written, many of them leading you to want to research more. The entry for April 7th, the day I'm writing this description, contains four paragraphs about the nun who tried to kill Mussolini in 1926. Perfect bathroom reading for the adult who wants to be both entertained and to expand their sense of the scope of the world, or you could give this to a 9-year-old or older to spark their curiosity for the weird and wild side of history.
