Reviews

A charming, amusing and instructive little book. I like the drawings too. I would like to give it to one of my granddaughters for her birthday
Christopher Hibbert
Informative, reliable and hugely entertaining, this is a valuable work of reference which should be not only in every school library but also in every home.
Richard Perceval Graves
An excellent idea for the general bookshelf.
Financial Times, July 2000
Two really useful A-Z biographical dictionaries.

This book is a gem. I read it almost by chance, and was soon as engrossed as my ten-year-old son by the lives of the people who have made Britain what she is today. It will be very useful to every young student of history, and will inform and entertain adults as well.
