This book is not only funny, but very informative, telling the tales of Kings, Queens, wars and diseases. Perfect for kids (and Adults!) who want an easy to read, brief history of britain.

A great little book this, factually accruate, yet amusing. Just enough detail to satisy, but every page has facinating facts. Sure if you want a detailed history on the english civil war, don`t buy this book, but iy you want to have a quite read before you go to bed, nothing heavy then this is for you. i prefer it to the 2nd book, which has to much detail....

Accurate yet funny account of history of the UK (particuarly England). Lots of odd referances yet never heavy. Indeed the balance between detail and ease of reading is excellent. For the price even if your on the fence its well worth a look.

Comparisons with 1066 and all that have been made and I don't think that there can be any doubt doubt that it is nowhere near as funny as that Masterpiece. However, just think about it. 1066 is no use at all as a History Textbook ...That is a piece of literature, this is an attempt to get kids more interested in history. It is factually accurate and it holds their interest far more than other textbooks. Therefore, I would say that it is rather a good little book!

This book was brilliant !!! I really enjoyed reading the funny comments made about several "key" political figures because he was saying what everyone thought of these people. I am sure this book will help me with my history studies as I get older without boring my mind out. This is a wonderful book for all ages. I just can't wait until I get the first part of this great duo.

This little book packs a lot of information into a small little package. Sure, it glosses over big chunks of history but, as the cover clearly states, it doesn't include those boring bits. If you want a quick review of what king did what to who or which wife(s?) of Henry VIII didn't get her head cut off, this book will do it and entertain at the same time. It's pretty cheap too!
