Reviews

"Absolutely wonderful! I wish they'd had books like this when I was young." - Anthony Horowitz, author of Alex Rider

"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, author of Tracey Beaker

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

"A view of human history from the Big Bang to experimental lab-grown meat." Kirkus Reviews

"Starting with the Big Bang, concluding with space exploration, and neatly delineating the history of the earth on an imagined 24-hour clock, Lloyd takes readers on a journey from prehistory to the modern era that captivates, engages, entertains, and respects the intellect and enthusiasm of young readers." - Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) Nonfiction Honor List 2019

"The writing is engaging and thoughtful, providing plenty of information, humor, and opportunity for deeper thinking as Lloyd makes connections to things happening across the globe. He takes a surprisingly deep dive into the various prehistorical eras. Human conflicts throughout history share equal time with important inventions and the arts." - School Library Journal

"A wonderful gift for the curious and the families who love them. Not to be missed." - Parents' Choice

"This chronologically organized reference but meant to be read for fun book ... is beautiful with lots of colorful finding aids, primary source images, snappy writing and engrossing topics (human evolution, inventions in the Muslim world, dinosaurs, etc.) Although it has an index, it's clearly meant to be pored over by the obsessive gatherer of facts who just can't get enough Genghis Kahn or Megacerops. It's the kid version of Schott's Original Miscellany or the Atlas Obscura." - Youth Services Book Review
