External Reviews

"Excellent book about the history of Britain and its kings - the stories are written clearly, concisely and it explains difficult concepts and words in an easy to understand way. The history becomes a big adventure story. I found it hard to put down. Can't wait to read this to my kids when they get a bit older."

"A lovely, read aloud, big-picture, history of England that has aged rather well." - Goodreads Reviews.

"The histories of most islands . . . are stories of comings and goings, of invaders and immigrants. The story of our island is one of these. We need to tell our children the whole story . . ." - M. Kaufmann.
