Through the Looking Glass Children's Book ReviewWonderfully written and packed with interesting pieces of information, this excellent title not only tells the story of ten extraordinary world leaders, but readers will also see how these ten people were associated in some way. It is interesting to see how the thread of connection runs through the book.
