Comments about Childrens Miscellany:

I bought this as an Easter gift for my 11 year old niece. It was enjoyed on Easter morning as she quizzed us all on various things such as the most common family name in each country. The book is clearly from the UK and has a European focus - Australia was often left out. A fun low-cost gift, but not one likely to be read often.
