'I can't praise Usborne enough for introducing [internet links] to many of their non-fiction books as it really helps children retain information' - Adventures in Home Schooling; 'Survival is a stunning little pocket-sized book... that can turn you into a would-be Bear Gryllis as it offers hints and tips on how to stay alive in the most hostile situations and environments. Packed with awesome comic-strip-style illustrations and full colour photographs, it's reminiscent of Usborne's utterly brilliant Spy and Detective handbooks, brought bang up to date with a really modern look and feel' - Read it Daddy'
