Welcome to ‘The Smarty Pants Series’ – a collection of random facts, trivia, and general knowledge.

The series title was derived from the name of the first book which was suggested during a conversation at a school reunion when we humorously reminisced about the time a classmate was told by the teacher that he was a smarty pants. The praise for getting all of his homework correct brought a great sense of achievement but in the excitement, he got his words mixed up and ran around the playground telling others that the teacher had called him clever knickers!

Great read, l found it very interesting and absorbing with every fact that l was reading. A must read for all.


An excellent book. The author obviously put a lot of thought and research into its compilation. Would have no hesitation in strongly recommending ‘Smarter Than Yesterday’ as you will be smarter than yesterday after reading it. Love the fact that you can read anywhere in the book, leave it down and start somewhere else later and still enjoy it.


This is an excellent book. Ideal for sitting down with a cup of coffee and a muffin! Full of great bite sized facts and stories and very different than your usual trivia books!! Well worth a read.


This book was very informative and funny. It didn't want it to end. But like they say, "All good things must come to an end.
