Icon Books's Magpie series is quickly gaining a reputation for fun, incisive miscellanies on a broad range of topics.

Simon Flynn's The Science Magpie, which has sold more than twenty thousand copies worldwide, was described by the New Scientist as a cornucopia of curious facts, anecdotes, and quotations and] is sure to entertain and surprise.

The Nature Magpie by Daniel Allen was described by Desmond Morris, author of The Naked Ape, as a miscellany that keeps you turning the pages, and the Good Book Guide (UK) said that this delightfully zany volume presents an eclectic selection of facts and fiction gleaned from Nature . . . all lightly peppered by Allen's dry wit.

Country Life magazine said of Marc Allum's Antiques Magpie that it is a source of unlikely information, but a laugh a page. A perfect present for virtually everyone.

This attractively presented set presents all three paperback books in a wonderfully eclectic package perfect for any curious mind.
