Review quote

Praise for The Comic Strip History of the World: 'This book is undoubtedly the most original book about history you will ever read ... A truly entertaining way to discover what gruesome deeds our ancestors got up to' Anorak Magazine 'An enjoyable romp from the Big Bang to genetic engineering via ancient civilisations, Attila the Hun, plague and revolution ... This little book manages to cram in lots of different topics and is not too Eurocentric' The School Librarian Praise for The Comic Strip History of Space: "This is a deceptively clever book. Sally Kindberg's comic strip form makes the content accessible and fun ... very entertaining with plenty of jokes' English: Four to eleven magazine 'a righteous romp through history in true comic strip style. It has a fast-flowing narrative with plenty of humour thrown in.' tBk Magazineshow more
