Reviews

The best way to teach history to children is by being honest about the gory lusts of our ancestors... unlike the Horrible Histories series, this one book gives us all the important bits of British history boiled down to palatable chunks... and it's perfectly illustrated. I'd have loved this when I was younger Waterstones Books Quarterly Canters through British history from Ancient Britons to the 2013 Olympic Games Books for Keeps
