    Do you ever wonder where the stuff around you all came from? No, not from the shops. I mean, who had the amazing idea of making video games or the annoying idea of building a school?

    In the latest laugh-out-loud book from the record-breaking and extremely handsome Adam Kay and Henry Paker, you'll learn about everything ever invented, from the daft to the disgusting to the downright dangerous.

    You'll discover all about:

    - The queen who pooed on the first ever toilet

    - How velcro was invented by a dog

    - Why the Ancient Greeks wiped their bums on dinner plates

    As well as 48,762,851,208 other facts. (Approximately.)
