I think the book Adolf Hitler is a very good book ideal for all young readers. In conclusion it's a great book with detail.
Hallo, I've been waiting a long time to read about Adolf Hitler but my greedy friend Alex won't let me read it because he reads one and I mean one page a month! Bye for now Henry P.S. I love the Usborne books they're ace man ace P.P.S I've read Martin Luther King Jr, Tutankkamun and Captain Cook
