How does photosynthesis work? Who was the first Tudor king? What is a preposition, or a conjunction? What causes a tsunami? If you’re caught In flagrante delicto what has happened? And how do you calculate the area of a triangle? Answering all the questions you’re afraid to admit you need to ask, “Match Wits with the Kids” covers all the key school subjects – Maths, English, Science, History, Geography and languages. Jonathan Green, a highly experienced teacher and popular author, provides in a nutshell everything you need to refresh your memory. Including tests to see if you’ve taken it all in, “Match Wits with the Kids” is a lot of fun – and the ideal read for anyone feeling threatened by know-it-all children.

Jonathan Green has worked as a teacher for the last thirteen years, four of those as a deputy head teacher. In that time he has also written numerous popular books for children – everything from Sonic the Hedgehog to Doctor Who – and science fiction and fantasy novels for adults. He is also the author of What Is Myrrh Anyway?

“Quizzed by The Times over the success of Le Cahier de Vacances Pour Adulte, French a mother of three Isabelle Antoni said: ‘I bought the book and we did it together as a family. It was funny and interesting and there was a little bit of competition between me and my children over this. I found out that my son is not too bad at history after all, which was nice.'”
