about

Top 10 for Boys is one of the late Russell Ash''s final forays into the world of fact encyclopedias. Creative and pioneering as he was, the fact guru''s books were always the furthest thing from mundane. Top 10 for Boys is much more than a list of the top this-and-that. Jam-packed to the edges with page-bursting graphics and upbeat text, Top 10 for Boys is ideal for boys 10 and up, even those whose eyes are glued to video games.

Top 10 for Boys is exclusively for boys. The content is relevant only to them. All movies and games are rated 12 or under, meaning they can check out absolutely all the media featured in the Top 10 universe. The book can be enjoyed as is or interactively to make it a one-of-a-kind copy. Each reader will explore its pages differently.

An introduction shows readers how to use the book. The great features include:

  • Top 10s (multiple topics, multiple lists)
  • Been & Seen (been there? seen that?)
  • Give It a Try (get active, try something new)
  • Shuffle Up (personalize the lists)
  • Off the Chart (wow! facts)
  • Xtreme Fact (the most extreme extremes!)
  • Check it Out (look at this!)
  • Fact Flash! (did you know?)
  • Another Thing! (...still more facts)

The chapters are:

  • High-Octane Machines
  • Animal Kingdom
  • Gaming Galaxy
  • Sport Zone
  • Forces of Nature
  • Music Mash-Up
  • Epic Structures
  • Movie Showtime
  • Only Human
  • Infinite Space

Each chapter ends with a Shout Out spread on which readers can make their own ratings and enjoy a variety of games and puzzles. Answers are at the book''s end.
