Take a trip back in time to the eras of the Romans, the Tudors and the Ancient Egyptians in this list of must-have historical fiction books. But hold on tight, because this is not history as you learnt it in school.
We asked some of our brilliant authors (and dads): Nick Mohammed, Chris Bradford and Jeremy Strong about the importance of reading with their kids. From creating personal theme tunes to rediscovering Harry Potter, they spilled the beans.
Jeremy Strong once worked in a bakery, putting the jam into three thousand doughnuts every night. Now he puts the jam into stories instead, which he finds much more exciting.

Jeremy Strong lives near Bath with his wife, Gillie, four cats and a flying cow.
