The What on Earth? Wallbook : From the Big Bang to the Present Day by Christopher Lloyd
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

With more than 1,000 pictures and captions depicting millions of years of evolution, the rise and fall of civilisations, the top 100 battles and on the reverse, the story of planet, life and people from the Big Bang to the present day, the What on Earth? Wallbook is an exhilarating journey through the past. The book is designed both to be read as a book and to be viewed as a poster that concertinas out to 2.3 metres. Terrifically original publishing.

There are three in the series so far:

The What on Earth? Wallbook: From the Big Bang to the Present Day
