Synopsis

I'm 8 and I've Burped 40,908 Times! Terrific Trivia About Kids Your Age by Mitchell Symons

This is a brilliant book packed with amazing facts and terrific trivia about things that kids have done when they are eight from writing novels and symphonies to climbing mountains and recording hit records. Did you know? By the time you are 8 you will have: taken 67,159,993 breaths; blinked 52,851,994 times; seen 200,000 television adverts; and, slept 38,070 hours and 53 minutes.

About the Author

Mitchell Symons was born in 1957 in London and educated at Mill Hill School and the LSE, where he studied law. He was a principal writer of early editions of the board game Trivial Pursuit and has devised many television formats. He has written over forty books - including six for children with another eight in various stages of preparation. In naming Mitchell as the friend he would phone (as a Phone-A-Friend) if he were appearing on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Chris Tarrant said: Mitch knows more totally useless things about useless subjects than anybody on earth . His children's books, published Random House, are very successful. He won the 2010 Blue Peter Award for Best Book (with Facts) and had a book chosen for the Booked Up scheme in 2008 and 2010. Random House are about to sell the millionth title in the six-book series.
