Product description

Review

A riveting mosaic of exciting true stories…I couldn’t put it down! ― Deborah Heiligman, award-winning author of Vincent and Theo: The Van Gogh Brothers

Just gobbling up more of Absolutely Everything! What a fabulously engaging read. Non-fiction that rolls along like an adventure novel. It’s a great book written with enormous vitality. Chris’s enthusiasm shines through and is completely infectious. Love it! ― Nicola Davies, zoologist and children's author

From the Big Bang to yesterday's breakfast, this book of fun and discovery makes sense of it ALL. ― Martin Brown, co-author, Horrible Histories

I think Absolutely Everything is absolutely amazing. It manages to explain our entire world history in an informed, entertaining and truly accessible way. Children will love it - and adults too! ― Jacqueline Wilson

Absolutely wonderful! I wish they'd had books like this when I was young ― Anthony Horowitz

About the Author

Bestselling author Christopher Lloyd began his career as a journalist with the Sunday Times newspaper. Then, while camping with his family, he had a critical realisation: even with a 1st class degree in history from Cambridge University and experience as a science writer, there was so much about the world he didn’t know. So, he set out to write books that zoom out and tell the big stories, opening readers’ eyes to how seemingly unrelated events fit together and showing them multiple perspectives on the world, all in highly engaging prose and matched with lively illustration and photography. Now, with several books in print, including the bestselling What on Earth Happened? and Absolutely Everything, Chris divides his time between writing books and delivering lectures and workshops to schools, literary festivals, and a wide range of other venues around the world. He lives in Tonbridge, Kent, UK, with his wife and two adorable terriers.


Andy Forshaw graduated in graphic design and illustration from London’s Central Saint Martins college, and has worked on numerous online and publishing projects. Since 2010, Andy has created more than 5,000 illustrations for children’s books. When not illustrating, Andy can be found exploring the countryside on his bike.
