Ever wondered which 10 dinosaurs were the largest, and what they weighed…in cats? Or how much of your DNA you share with other animals…and bananas? Enter the listiverse and get ready to see the world in a whole new way. Listified! takes the best and most amazing parts of the universe —erupting volcanoes, medieval machines, jumping spiders, exploding stars, and everything in between — and organizes them into quirky list form for curious kids and their friends and family to enjoy.

Brought to life by imaginative and hilarious artworks, each list presents subjects from new and unexpected angles. So let Britannica's Listified! take you on a journey through 300 lists that illuminate everything from the human body, to prehistoric creatures, planet Earth, outer space, and the mysteries beyond. Here are three mind-blowing facts from Listified! to get you started…

A Tyrannosaurus rex could swallow 15,000 hamburgers in a single bite. A bolt of lightning is the width of your thumb and five times hotter than the surface of the Sun. If you tied all your hair together into a single cord, it could support the weight of 18 cows. An utterly absorbing compendium of amazing facts and trivia that will keep children aged 8+ entertained for hours!

‘Listified!’ by Andrew Pettie, illustrated by Andres Lozano, is a fascinating addition to the Britannica Books. There are 300 lists in the book to engage anyone with interest in almost anything. Some pages detail odd jobs, such as teddy bear surgeons, dog food tasters, and professional sleepers, while other pages go into detail about dinosaurs, planets, animals, babies, machines, quotes, and so much more!

Coupled with illustrations that are great for kids and adults alike to further explore the facts in the book, this is a perfect addition to anyone’s library, especially lovers of trivia. You can read the book in any order, as there are lists for all different sorts of topics; however, the book is separated into chapters, including space, nature, dinosaur times, animals, the body, being human, inventions, and game changers. It also contains an eight-page glossary and an index to help find whatever one might have the urge to learn more about at any given moment.

Great for anyone of any age to explore facts and figures, bust myths, and quiz oneself, this will be a book to be picked up time and time again.
