In November, bears head for their beds and roll into a furry ball. Their breathing slows down, and their heart rate drops from fifty-five to just nine beats a minute. As their body gets colder, they enter into a deep sleep called a torpor. If they’re left undisturbed, bears won’t wake for months. They don’t eat, drink or go to the loo because bears have an amazing ability to hold it all in. How? They develop a plug in their bottom made from dried poo!

Although a female bear mates in early summer, her babies won’t grow in her womb until she has entered her sleepy torpor. After two months, she gives birth to as many as four blind, bald and toothless cubs, each weighing little more than a large potato. They use all their baby strength to suckle milk from their mother who hardly even wakes throughout the whole process.

Buckle up for an extraordinary ride through the 14-billion year history of absolutely everything! Written and narrated by best-selling world history author Christopher Lloyd, this remarkable story (which is far more amazing than anything you can make up) sweeps through natural history with the creation of planet Earth, the beginning of life, the age of dinosaurs, mass extinctions, and the rise of prehistoric humans. The story then leaps through the ancient civilizations and into medieval times, where wars, revolutions, and scientific inventions reshape the world. Finally we arrive in the modern age which brings with it new challenges of pollution, climate change, viral pandemics, and much more. How will a world of 8 billion humans survive in the future? Christopher Lloyd began his career as a journalist with the Sunday Times newspaper. Then, one day, he had a realisation: even with a 1st class degree in history from Cambridge University and experience as a science writer, there was so much about the world he didn’t know. So, he set out to write books that showed how seemingly unrelated events fit together. And so, Chris created the now bestselling Absolutely Everything!. A book that uses engaging prose and lively illustration and photography, to give diverse perspectives on the world. Chris now divides his time between writing inspiring books and delivering workshops to curious kids and his books have sold over 1 million copies. He lives in Tonbridge, Kent, with his wife and two adorable terriers.

‘From the Big Bang to computer technology, it tells, in simple, chatty sentences, a story that tries to account for as much as possible about our world!’ The Sunday Times Children’s Book of the Year ‘Perfect for any child who wants to know about absolutely everything.’ Telegraph Christmas Books 2018 ‘Absolutely fascinating. I love the mixture

of information, humour, photographs, illustrations and reflection. This creates a book that is fun and easy to read and accessibly informative...[It] can be enjoyed and appreciated by all the family.’
