Press reviews

“A great overview of the whole conflict... a great book for primary school kids - but also contains enough colourful snippets and insights to appeal to older children, too.”
“See inside the Second World War is a child-friendly but extremely detailed account of the run-up to the Normandy Landings. There are over 60 flaps for busy and curious little fingers to open and explore... The See inside series is such a fantastic way to engage children with history and fact-finding.”
