...'Horatio Nelson and his Victory', by Philip Reeve.

'Horatio Nelson was dead famous when he was alive, and he became even more dead famous once he was dead. Even now, nearly 200 years later, most people know something about him. We asked a selection of ordinary passers-by what the name Nelson means to them...........Well if you carry on reading this...

4.0 out of 5 stars Horatio is Hip, 13 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
having taken my 6 year old Grandson to see the Victory, I wanted to find a fun follow-up. All the other books seemed dry, but this approaches Nelson's achievements with wit and humour. Perfect.
