A charming, amusing and instructive little book. I like the drawings too. I would like to give it to one of my granddaughters for her birthday

Christopher Hibbert

Informative, reliable and hugely entertaining, this is a valuable work of reference which should be not only in every school library but also in every home.

Richard Perceval Graves
