Press & Blog Reviews

This is a book that makes you want to read it! Every page has a fascinating story on it; you’ll meet characters who were often either slightly crazy, or incredibly bright, or just plain brave. You’ll learn new words, you’ll learn about history, and you’ll end up looking afresh at the things around you which we often take for granted nowadays.
