I decided to represent the book, The History Of The World In Bite Sized Chunks, by Emma Marriot, with a chance to learn while having fun. My decision was to make a whole novel into a game of trivia. Reading the brief history of the world allowed me to gain fun facts about different cultures that existed in history. Such as Japans writing system actually being from China, and the first communist union beginning in the 1920’s. Therefore, I thought, ” Why use a reference book when you can make it into a fun quiz; especially since I had access to all of the facts that I needed to make a trivia game anyways.”
