Murderous Maths and Foul Football

Two books in "The Knowledge" series are "Murderous Maths" and "More Murderous Maths" . However, Kjartan Poskitt incorporated these two books and many others into their own Murderous Maths series. Due to this, these two books don't have "The Knowledge" logo at the top any more and are now officially part of the Murderous Maths series. To avoid furthur confusion, Poskitt has recently renamed the two books with more catchy, unique titles. The same sort of incident has occurred with one "The Knowledge" book known as "Foul Football", which has sparked a whole series of its own as well, called Foul Football.
