We’re comparing the world’s most bizarre parallel events! Did you know that the Eiffel Tower was presented at the 1889 World’s Fair–the same year that Nintendo was founded? Or that the last beheading by guillotine in France occurred in 1977–the same year that Star Wars was released? It might feel like you’re in a time warp, but it’s all true! This hardcover book is 143 pages long.
