National Non-Fiction November

InfographicsWe’ve saved our National Non-Fiction November (#NNFN) offering until now.

Whilst most of our previous posts have been fiction based, we certainly don’t underestimate the joy that a bit of non-fiction can bring. The ‘Human Body’ written by Simon Rogers, illustrated by Peter Grundy is a fine example.

This book is made more accessible by the use of clean, bright design, tabbed chapters and simple, clear infographics.

I also learned a few new facts and snippets of information whilst flicking through the chapters. For example, did you know you release approximately a litre of gas every day?! Well you do now.

The information is presented in punchy, bite-sized pieces of information and delivered with a sense of humour. This is one we will undoubtedly be referring to again and again.
