9 year old loves Tony Robinson's books

My son loves these little books. It's too bad they aren't longer. Robinson does a good job of giving an overview of the subject of the book, and making it interesting with funny voices, sound effects, and little tidbits that delve in a little bit deeper (interesting quotes, etc.).
