Customer Review

Format: Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
The spirit of this book is great. Getting children interested in the wider world using juicy titbits is never a bad thing.

I would have liked to see a little more use of maps, to give a sense of place to the territories being described. They are of course also an essential tool for exploration.

Some of the illustrations are genuinely amusing, but most are merely adequate. To be fair though, everything in the book is illustrated, which represents a lot of work for the artist. There are no photographic plates.

The content is pitched correctly for 9 - 11 year, but the tone of the writing could be seen as slightly patronising. I would have prefered it to be less dictatorial in places.

Ideal for a primary school library, or as a present.
