Numerous amazing and little known facts about the Olympics will inform and amuse children in equal measure. From a heroic marathon runner in 490 BC to one who sneaked a lift in 1904, this A-Z brings to life the epic feats and outrageous cheats that have helped make the greatest sporting event ever. The publication forms a perfect guide for children and a must-have souvenir for the games in 2012.

This hardback pocket A-Z is the second in our A is for Alphabet Series after L is for London.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
