Table of Contents
A present for the studious child; did you know that the 8,87th asteroid to be discovered since 1801 was named after London? Pavarotti has his own, too. This book about names will tickle the fancy of nine-year-olds and over - from Charles Dickens's weirdest character names to the best worst punning shop names ever: Pete's a Place , and my favourite, for a crime bookshop, If Books Could Kill . -- Philip Womack The Daily Telegraph 20111210
This is the late Russell Ash's second book for Random House Children's Books, but he wrote, and contributed to over 120 non-fiction titles on a vast range of subjects, both serious and humorous, in his 40 years as a writer.
