    Review quote
    "'Plenty of fascinating facts presented with the kind of irreverence kids love' - The Times; 'Let your children impress poolside companions and dinner guests on your costa holiday by spouting amusing anecdotes and informative titbits about Spanish life and society, all harvested from this jolly piece of literature' - Pick Your Brains about Spain - Observer; 'some of this is fascinating and delivered in the sort of language many children will like' - Books of the Week, The Sunday Times 'Aimed at (and edited by) 8 to 12 -year olds, Pick Your Brains is a fun, fact-filled series... The perfect antidote to plane, train or automobile rage' - Irish Independent; 'A handy guide to great places to visit, weird customs, a potted history and bizarre facts about the country... Some of the places sound fab and you would never have heard about without a guidebook.' * * * * Viewers' review, BBC Newsround website"
