Review quote

'A history book doesn't have to be boring - your child can take in the facts in the form of tabloid newspaper headlines in the Newspaper Histories (will you pick up the Stone Age Sentinel or the Egyptian Echo?). Suddenly medieval events seem a lot more like our big news stories of the day...' - The School Run
