Alex Tulloch's book "The Little Book of Kent" is a funny, fact-packed compendium of the sort of frivolous, fantastic, and simply strange information which no one will want to be without. Here we find out about the most unusual crimes and punishments, eccentric inhabitants, famous sons and daughters, and literally hundreds of wacky facts (plus some authentically bizarre bits of historic trivia). There are lots of factual chapters but also plenty of random details which will amuse and surprise.

This is an ideal book to have by your bedside or while away the hours on a travel journey. And if you like to take part in pub quizzes (or set them) then you will find this book a veritable treasure trove of useful information as well as just fascinating trivia.

Who knew, for instance, that Laurel and Hardy cut the ribbon when the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch narrow gauge railway was reopened after the war? Did you know that there are more castles in Kent, than in any other county in England?
