‘Monkman and Seagull show that a lot of knowledge is a wonderful thing and they do it with style, charm and endearing gusto.’ — STEPHEN FRY 

Rupert Hawksley at the Telegraph: "Among the usual glut of Christmas quiz books, The Monkman and Seagull Quiz Book … stands out." 

You probably know them best from March’s electrifying University Challenge semi-final, which saw two of the series’ most memorable contestants, dapper Bobby Seagull and fan favourite Eric Monkman, go head-to-head in a Cambridge derby between Emmanuel and Wolfson colleges. In this new quiz book, however, Monkman and Seagull are on the same team – and their opponent is you!

Containing over 540 questions - FROM THE MOST DIFFICULT, TO ONES DESIGNED FOR YOUNGER READERS, this book will see the devilish wits of TV’s brainiest boffins put to the page for the first time, with tricks and tests to taunt even the smuggest sofa-shouter. From puzzles to pop quizzes on everything from particle physics to philharmonics, it’s sure to perplex even Paxman. 

'What Watson and Crick were to DNA, and Burke and Hare were to grave-robbing, Monkman and Seagull are to quizzing.' - LOUIS THEROUX

‘They are perhaps the brainiest, quirkiest and

most charming of all double acts.’
