This will appeal to the SCHOTT'S ORIGINAL MISCELLANY market, but it provides many more facts, and on a much wider range of topics. Fascinating, entertaining and intriguing, WHOSE UNCLE WAS BOB? is an irresistible mix of bizarre and out-of-the-way information, with a strong phrase-and-fable slant, but also including anecdotes, odd news reports, quotations, superstitions, tall tales and frankly unbelievable truths. The structure, to suit the leisurely dipper-in, is thematic, with nine main sections, with many subdivisions, features, lists, etc., together with a generous smattering of illustrations of the unexpected, the unlikely and the really quite extraordinary. Includes the full story of Cardinal Richelieu's cats and reveals when carrots were purple...and why frogs explode.
