Most underwear put on in one minute (team of two)
Like, just how many pairs of superhero underwear can a person put on in one minute? (Paul Michael Hughes Photography)

Also relevant to those training to become the ultimate trivia champ. Or anyone who just likes knowing cool stuff.

Read on for OWLconnected reader Lillie's review of this need-to-know pop-culture compendium**.

Lillie says:

I really liked the fact that they really engage you into the book and make you want to read more. The thing I really liked aside from the amazing records was the interviews with the people that were important for that page.

What I thought could be a bit better was the movie section. For instance, when I was reading the Kung Fu Panda page I was thinking, what does how much a python weighs have to do with anything from the movie? Overall though, I thought it was a brilliant book.

I think other kids would read it because who does not like hearing about world record blockbusters, right?

My overall rating out of 10/10! ??????????
