This entire series is fabulous. Tons of historical information in a format that is engaging for kids. The boys especially like these, and read them just for fun. There are dozens of them.
The text was only slightly above average. The glossary was severly lacking. The concept of the book was well thought out. The illustrations were eye-catching.

I like the humor in history it gives
I'm currently addicted to these books.
