Bursting with relevant, interesting information ... backed with fun facts and stories ... a special mention for the illustrations, which are eye-catching, colourful and humorous and bring a whole new dimension to the background stories ... manages to pack in the right amount of information for the book to be interesting but not intimidating to its young readers ... wonderful Teaching English
