Our favourite page is "The best of the rest", where the facts get fantastically random! Did you know that the world's oldest prosthetic wooden toe was made 3,000 years ago in Ancient Egypt?

Complete with carefully curated Usborne Quicklinks, readers can watch speedy cheetahs, see views from the world's tallest skyscrapers, take a virtual tour of the International Space Station, and discover even more record-breaking facts simply by surfing the web.
