The Lovereading4Kids comment
Records and reputations, cheats and champs, victors and venues - here's the lowdown on the modern Olympic games, published in advance of London 2012, from the one and only Richard Brassey. In a sentence, lots of wacky facts about the olympics and Olympic champions down the centuries!!!! As always with Richard Brassey's popular books, there are comic strips, fact boxes, hilarious captions and speech bubbles, in a book that's packed with amazing information and entertaining insight.
The Story of the Olympics by Richard Brassey
The quirkiest guide you will ever read to the history of the world's most famous celebration of sport. From the story of how ethos of the games of ancient Greece has been carried down and into the twenty-first century, to the individual tales of heroes and heroines, this is a lively, witty and entertaining guide for young readers everywhere.
'witty and entertaining ... There's likely to be a slew of books about the Olympics before the Games open, but this one will take some beating: loads of information, engaging format and written with wit. 4/5 stars' - The Bookbag
