'(The series) provides a "way in" for less confident readers and whets the appetite of history-phobes.' -- Literacy & Learning. 'These bright and breezy books are packed with quirky facts and information. They work equally well as books for dipping into at random or as accessible end-to-end reads.' -- Books for Keeps.
