AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Nathan Foley is tired of watching other kids receive awards at assembly for great achievements, so he hatches a plan to do something amazingly amazing by breaking a record in the Amazing World Records book. With little planning but lots of daring, Nathan and his mates make numerous attempts at a variety of World Record feats: from longest airborne jump by bicycle, to fastest furniture, and even fastest onion-eating. Each attempt is unsuccessful and quite frequently painful, and just as the boys are about to admit defeat, they discover that they indeed have broken a record the most world record attempts in 48 hours!'(From the publisher's website.)
