Summary

About the book:
 
The world is a strange, surprising place, in ways large and small, serious and trivial. Many times, things you may have assumed to be true (for years!) might be totally false. Other times, what you long believed to be a myth is actually fact. From an earthquake-proof cathedral that's made almost entirely of cardboard to an ancient Egyptian mummy with a modern-day passport, this list of crazy-but-true facts is sure to challenge your preconceived notions about the world.About the author:

    Jay's grandfather is old, maybe twice as many summers as he has fingers and toes, but he is wise too.

But outside, danger is at their door; food is getting scarcer, tribes are at war, and all the time the river water is rising... 
     
    A brand new and exciting tale, based on real historical and archaeological  evidence, this story is full of Terry Deary's imaginative style and dry  wit.

    Mesopotamia, 2500 years ago 
     
    Everyone in the tribe must work; all the men go hunting for bulls and mountain lions - apart from Sin-leqi, that is. Sin-leqi stays home and reads tablets in the great temples. The tablets tell tales of the legendary Gilgamesh, tales that are so fantastical that lazy Sin-leqi doesn't have to work, as long as he keeps telling them. But when the story comes to end, Sin-leqi is in trouble...
