The Scholastic Book of World Records is being freshened up for 2004: nearly all of the photos will be replaced, the graphs will be re-designed, and brand new records will be added. All of the entries will be revised, and an all new bonus section of wild and amazing facts will be included.
Each of the 300 records in the book has its own page that includes a full-color photograph and a detailed description of the record. A colorful bar graph that ranks other record holders in the same category is also included for every record.

Want to freak out your friends? Tell them about the world’s largest rodent--four feet long, 20 inches tall, and up to 150 pounds! Or perhaps there’s someone you want to impress with a bit of trivia about women’s basketball or the Tour de France. Wow your teachers with this factoid: Finland is the country with the most cell phone users. With more than 300 amazing records, the newly updated Scholastic Book of World Records is better than ever for 2004. This fun and informative book is divided into seven categories of records: Popular Culture, Science and Technology, Sports, Nature, United States, Human-Made, and Money and Business. Packed with more than 600 photos and graphics, the book features brief, fascinating text for each entry, handy, color-coded organizing tabs, and helpful comparison charts. Find out how the the Death Cap--the world’s most poisonous mushroom--compares with the Destroying Angel, Amanita Alba, Fly Agaric, and Deadly Galerina in their respective likeliness to cause death to humans. The Book of World Records is both a valuable resource for schoolwork--with facts about art, animals, plants, industry, the solar system, foreign countries, and money--and a thoroughly entertaining read.
