This is not a guidebook. And it is definitely 'not-for-parents'. Cool stuff to know about every country in the world. Everyone knows 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?

The world is a very big place, and in The Not-for-Parents Travel Book we’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 dedicated page that’s jam-packed with up-to-the-minute stats, record-breaking facts, hideous histories, epic events, and wild and wacky critters. Plus you'll get to know the really important stuff like population, lingo, capital city, currency and national pastimes. And so we say bon voyage and happy travelling!
