Reviews

'Colourful characters, humour and a light narrative touch give this lots of boy appeal.'

'Designed to appeal to that ever-elusive group: reluctant reders and boys of seven years and over, this is just one in a fun interactive series of books focusing on what kids really want to be when they grow up.'

'Written in an accessible style with humorous illustrations, they are great for engaging reluctant readers as well as educating them about a historical period.'

'This is just one in a fun, interactive series of books focusing on what kids really want to be when they grow up...'
