Publisher's Summary

When his teacher sets the class a History project, Sam cannot choose which bit of History he prefers, so decides to do all of it. His version of History is a rumbustious collection of half remembered facts, assembled roughly in the right order, and glued together with alarmingly confident misunderstanding. Sam takes us from Ancient Egypt right up to Last Week with the flair of a bright eyed nine year old.

Delightfully funny

Quirky and clever, great wordplay and humour. Laugh out loud at times, innocent and just lovely.

I loved it!

This is hilariously funny take on history. Requires knowledge of history to spot the humour, so not really a children's read.
