Bought for my 10 year old granddaughter as part of her Christmas present who is into history big time thanks to Horrible Histories. She has a number of Horrible History books so I thought this book would be of interest to her as she is very interested in the Stuart kings and queens. It is well illustrated and easy to understand.
We used this book for a school project and found it the best of all the information we needed and lots more besides.My son has even asked me to buy the book for him he enjoyed it that much.The plues side is that its not all about the scottish history but both scottish and english mixed.Well worth buying.
This new edition (ISBN 978-0955755903) revises and expands the book right up-to-date (2013), now covers from the Stone Age through to the announcement of the referendum in 2014. With over 300 fantastic illustrations throughout the book it really brings the text to life. Stock is available, but for the moment it would seem only direct from the publisher...
This book was purchased for my niece for a school project. Exactly what she needed full of information but not too complicated for an 8 year old to understand. Wish this book had been around when I was at school.
Great value for money and excellent condition considering it was second hand.
This was sold as in excellent used quality and even could be considered as a gift. Really, with a name written on the inner leaf, likely to be the original owner's name, I don't think so. Very disappointed. Will hand the book into the charity shop where it will be accurately sold.
