5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for kids and adults Jan. 9 2006
By Krit - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've read many of the books in this series and all are fun and enjoyable, especially the ones by Terry Deary. They give a basic overview of historical events or eras as well as some of the lesser known and usually grosser details. They also show kids how it may have felt to live through those specific times. They are written in a humourous light which will be quite appealing to the average 10 year old kid. I wish these books were around when I was a kid.

My teenage brother studies World Wars I and II for pleasure, so I gave him this book. He reads it a lot, as does my pre-teen brother. In fact, he probably reads it as much or more than his other favorite book, a book of studies on World War II battles. Definitely worth getting!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous rubbish Oct. 29 2005
By Susan Norton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
These books are dangerous rubbish. They take serious and complex issues and treat them in simplistic, patronising and highly selective terms. They misinform. I would advise parents who care about their children's education to keep their children well away from them.
