This book is better than ice cream, television, and your birthday combined!

The Facttracker is full of such statements. Unfortunately, most of them are lies, which is odd, since Traäkerfaxx is the town that produces all of the world's facts.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stupendously twisty! I enjoyed reading this book and I’m sure many children will as well. Eaton employed an odd storytelling method; where even in Traackerfaxx it was sometimes difficult to distinguish fact from fantasy! However, you wanted to keep reading to see what happened next to the little boy. Whether intentional or not, Eaton bushed on several interesting topics during the course of this bizarre little tale. These topics, such as the scientific hypothesis, importance of truthfulness, and being true to yourself could be further explored with your children while you read the book together. The fun thing is, these little tidbits are not blatantly obvious so the book can teach children while still being fun. Additionally, Eaton throws in some impressive vocabulary that will introduce your children to some fantastic new words. All in all a fun, quick, family read.
