Synopsis

Match Wits with the Kids by Jonathan Green

Relive your schooldays and gen up on the topics kids are learning with this enjoyable, easy-reading revision guide for adults.

So, who was the first Tudor king? What is a preposition, or a conjunction for that matter? And how exactly does photosynthesis work?

If you've ever been told to carpe diem, but were unsure whether or not that was an insult, then don't feel alone - we all find it hard to hold on to our school knowledge these days.

Fortunately Jonathan Green, a highly experienced teacher and popular author, is on hand to remind you of all the important things you used to know. With detailed, witty lessons on English, maths, the sciences, history, geography, languages and Classics, Match Wits With The Kids will refresh your memory and answer the questions you were afraid to admit you needed to ask.

Packed full of fun, facts and tests for all the family, Match Wits With The Kids will equip you with a bulletproof general knowledge... just what you need to stay one step ahead of smart-alec children (or catch up with know-it-all grown-ups).

Reviews

Quizzed by The Times over the success of Le Cahier de Vacances Pour Adulte, French a mother of three Isabelle Antoni said: 'I bought the book and we did it together as a family. It was funny and interesting and there was a little bit of competition between me and my children over this. I found out that my son is not too bad at history after all, which was nice.'

Hooked on books? Give Lovereading a go - for the chance to discover brilliant books, and to see why our members love it so.

Claire Hill

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

The best new books on the market, reviewed honestly, to give your readers the best choices.

Julie Cook
