Series: Lift-the-flap questions and answers
By Katie Daynes
Who built the Great Wall of China? Why did Egyptians make mummies? When did pirates roam the seas? Inquisitive young children can discover the answers to these questions and more in this beautifully illustrated information book, with over 60 flaps to lift and links to specially selected websites with video clips, activities and more information.
Katie Daynes has written oodles of books for Usborne, from lifting the flaps on germs and poo, through things to spot in the sea and at school, to the life stories of Nelson Mandela and Marie Antoinette. She wrote My First Chess Book after being taught by her son, Joe Birks, who became the British Under 9 Chess Champion in 2017. She now lives in Yorkshire with her architect husband, two inquisitive children and a hamster called Toffee. When she’s not writing books, Katie likes walking on the blustery moors, meeting friends for coffee and playing competitive board games.
“This is an essential book for the inquisitive young mind. [...] Perfect for primary children, this book is a welcome addition to the growing trend for high quality, informative, but fun, information books for children.”
June Hughes, The School Librarian
