About The Wonder Book of Would You Believe It?: Strange But True:

Who has not enjoyed the treasured moment of unearthing a beloved childhood book many years later and delighting in the tales that kept us rapt? The photographs and drawings, the avuncular tone, the care and attention to every detail, and the wonder of a by-gone age. There are many things to marvel at in "The Wonder Book of Would You Believe It?", the fascination of insects' eyes, the largest plants and fastest creatures, to the tales of dinosaurs and denizens of the deep, and not least the wonderful collection of fascinating facts covered. Coupled with this, each article is written in a gloriously rich and warm 1930's style of crafted sentences and beguiling turns of phrase.Here you will find a trove of oddities - strange but true - with titles such as "Whence Came Man's Animals Friends?", "A River of Logs", and "The Wonderful Life Story of a Fig". "The Wonder Book of How It's Done" is a rare gem, in part a joyous example of the RP world of the gramophone and wireless, in part a fabulous social history and glimpse of a bygone age.
