Riassunto: Which king ordered everyone to bed at 8pm? How much does the hammer of Big Ben's Bell weigh? Great Britain is a nation steeped in history, traditions, and terrible food. But how much do we really know about that weird and wonderful sceptered isle? In this informative, amusing, and fun compendium of knowledge, author Hannah Warner reveals a host of things you probably don't—but should—know about this fascinating country. This entertaining collection includes fascinating facts about royalty, politics, history, food and drink, sport, writers, transportation, and even Great British failures. It is a celebration of the great and the good (plus those who were not so great but tried hard). So once you've taken the bulldog for a walk, queued for your fish and chips, made a nice cup of tea and put your feet up, sit back and revel in all that is glorious about Great Britain!
L'autore: Hannah Warner used to work in the glamorous world of broadcasting, producing Steve Wright, Janice Long, and a forgettable Geri Halliwell special for BBC Radio 2. This is her third trivia book.
