A Day in the Life of a Caveman, A Queen and Everything in Between Synopsis

A colourful and comical tour through history from cartoonists Mike Barfield and Jess Bradley.

The hilarious minds from A Day in the Life of a Poo, a Gnu and You have teamed up once again - this time to give a taste of a day in the life of the people, animals and objects who made history.

Featuring a day in the life of early humans as they paint mammoths on the walls of a cave, a fierce gladiator battling in the Colosseum and the first woman in space. And not forgetting the animals of history - from an Egyptian cat (worshipped as a god, of course) to an albatross flying over Rapa Nui and a dog in the trenches of the First World War.

Readers can also discover the stories behind famous constructions, including the Great Wall of China and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and delve into the secret diaries of a Viking, Isaac Newton's cat and the wooden panel that became the Mona Lisa.

With over 90 entries told in the friendly, informative style of Mike Barfield and brought to life by Jess Bradley's brilliantly funny illustrations, this book will have children learning and laughing as they go.
