Interactive, die-cut, and fully illustrated, WHO WINS? turns history into a compelling game. With mix-and-match die-cut pages (so each make-your-own matchup includes two historical figures and one wild challenge), readers can flip any of the three panels and match 100 historical figures in 50 competitive head-to-head categories, from mini golf to climbing Mount Everest. Each character is given a short bio and ranked in six categories - bravery, leadership, artistry, wealth, wisdom, and fitness.

Let’s say Charles Dickens challenges Mother Teresa to a lightsaber duel - will his superior artistry overcome her advantage in bravery and leadership? Or who wins karaoke - Nelson Mandela or Jane Austen? They both certainly have a way with words, but Mandela’s over-the-top courage might take the day. Actually, there are no right answers, the reader decides and must justify the answer based on the rankings as well as facts from short biographies opposite each character’s page. Marie Curie vs. Queen Victoria in solving global warming? Gandhi vs. Charlie Chaplin in chess? Jackie Robinson vs. Confucius in a staring contest? And who would survive longest on Gilligan’s Island: Vincent "The Impressionist" van Gogh or Sacagawea, aka "The Pathfinder"? History has never been so much fun.

A three-panel mix-and-match history book that pits history's greatest figures against one another in head-to-head battles of brains, brawns and even baking - it's equal parts educational and entertaining.
