It covers around eighty topics, including how to build a treehouse, grow a crystal, or tell the direction with a watch.

It was published in the UK on 5 June 2006, and reached number one in the UK non-fiction charts several times, selling over half a million copies. In 2006, it won 'Book of the Year award' at the 2007 'Galaxy British Book Awards,' the Nibbies. In August 2007, it was reported that Disney will begin the production of a movie based on the book.
