Gr 3–7—With sections such as "Watch," "Browse," "Play," "Go," and "Consume," this title covers a wide array of pop culture and current trends, leaving esoteric world records such as "most people making sand angels" to its big brother, The Guinness Book of World Records. As usual, the photographs are stunning and the infographics noteworthy; both are a large part of the appeal of the Guinness books. Each spread has numerous entry points into the topic, so readers can jump right into whatever subject—be it emojis or console gaming—piques their curiosity. Each fact is clearly boxed and easy to read. Superlatives abound, of course, with entries including the largest collection of Winnie-the-Pooh memorabilia and the most-played trading card game. For added interest, interviews with some of the record-setters—for instance, Steve Blum, the most prolific voice actor—are sprinkled throughout. VERDICT Sure to be a hit among lovers of pop culture. Purchase where budgets allow.—Marie Drucker, Hewlett-Woodmere Public Library, NY
