How does hypnosis work? What is chocolate made of? And what do crocodiles eat for lunch? Think of a question, any question and you’ll probably find the answer here. Re-discovered and revived in Technicolor, Tim Hunkin’s entertaining and off-the-wall series of cartoons originally appeared in The Sunday Observer magazine between 1973 and 1987. Squeezed into each intricately drawn comic strip is a wealth of weird and wonderful information, as well as crazy tricks and practical experiments.

With over 125 comic strips in total, The Rudiments of Wisdom is back to delight and entertain a whole new generation of enquiring minds. Whether you immerse yourself from A-Z or dip in and out, you’re sure to emerge with some amazing, crazy and fascinating facts to wow your friends.
