The Lovereading4Kids comment

Everything important that’s happened in the world – in pictures, brilliant!

Lovereading comment:

If you’re not into history but feel you need to know just a little bit more than you do, then this is the book for you. The entire world history from how the world began (probably) through Ancient China, the Dark Ages and the Aztecs to the French Revolution, the British Empire and even beyond the 21st Century is encapsulated into less than 100 pages and all in cartoon graphic style. By the time you’ve dipped into it you’ll know what year the first European settlers arrived in America and just who was Attilla the Hun and lots lots more.


The Comic Strip History Of The World by Tracey Turner

From the Big Bang, to the present day, via Ancient China, The Roman Empire, Attila the Hun, The Dark Ages, Enlightenment, Revolution! etc. The entire history of the world has been packed into one hilarious, irreverent comic strip. From Goths and Visigoths, to Newton and Copernicus, all the significant facts and titillating trivias of the world’s most important periods, starting with the Big Bang, have been condensed for your entertainment and of course, education.

Written by Tracey Turner (101 Things) and illustrated by celebrated cartoonist Sally Kindberg, this is the ultimate book for absolutely Everyone. (Why let kids have all the fun.)


Praise for The Comic Strip History of the World: 'This book is undoubtedly the most original book about history you will ever read ... A truly entertaining way to discover what gruesome deeds our ancestors got up to

'An enjoyable romp from the Big Bang to genetic engineering via ancient civilisations, Attila the Hun, plague and revolution ... This little book manages to cram in lots of different topics and is not too Eurocentric'

. Sally Kindberg's comic strip form makes the content accessible and fun ... very entertaining with plenty of jokes

'a righteous romp through history in true comic strip style. It has a fast-flowing narrative with plenty of humour thrown in.'
