5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 Mar. 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a brilliant little book and although primarily for children Alan MacDonald the Author has done a really great job in matching an informative book with a reasonable reading age which believe me from the view of a professional educator, is no mean feat.
I'd say they are a step up in reading age from the pioneering work of Terry Deary with his Horrible Histories Series.
Deary's work is aimed at a reading age of a good 9 year old.
These would be enjoyed by someone who enjoys Deary's work and as a result would be pushed into a higher reading age of a good 10 or 11 year old. So I would urge educators to invest in this and others in the series as a great way to 'get 'em into reading and keep 'em there.
That is my own opinion others may differ. So this is just a rough guide to help a parent buy the right reading age book for their children.
I'd say this would be a good addition to a Y6 pupil book shelf. Boys especially would be 'turned on' to the subject matter.

To say I was entertained as well as informed is an understatment.
The wonderful illustrations of the brilliant Philip Reeve really add to the enjoyment of this wonderful book.

There are others in the series and I have enjoyed them too.
Horatio Nelson and His Victory (Dead Famous)
Winston Churchill and his Great Wars (Dead Famous)

Format: Paperback
From the popular DEAD FAMOUS series of books 'Oliver Cromwell and his Warts'.

'Which dead famous person gets their big head in a million shots every year? The answer is dead obvious really, since this is a book about Oliver Cromwell. Oliver gets his picture taken so often because his statue stands right outside the Houses of Parliament in London.'.....
...You'd think that would mean that you're pretty popular. But the fact is that many people still can't stand Ollie - even though he's been dead for over 300 years!
So why is Oliver so unpopular? .....Read on for a gripping tale full of battles, beheadings and unbelievably big noses, and meet the real Oliver Cromwell - warts and all!

176 pages, split into chapters:

Introduction
Timeline : Oliver the obscure
Kid Cromwell - a country life
Angry Oliver and the rebel Parliament
Oliver's army - picking sides
Timeline : Oliver and his Ironsides
Oliver and the not-so-Civil War
Oliver and chopping Charlie
Timeline : Oliver rules
Oliver and the killjoy Commonwealth
Oliver the First!
Old Oliver and his wandering head

Written in a variety of fonts with humorous black and white cartoon illustrations throughout.

Format: Paperback
These are a great series of books. My son (who is now 12) is home educated and these books have been a great way to encourage an interest history. He has read and re-read them on car journeys and they are easy to read, and witty I would think they would appeal to most 8-12 year olds.
