  • Take a journey to a vanished world with the ADVENTURES IN TIME series - stories so exciting you won't believe they're all true

    'Alexander's mind was clear. It was time to go east. Time to march into Asia, to confront the Persians and to meet his destiny.'


    Alexander of Macedon has one, wild dream: to rule the world. And with his childhood friends and his beloved horse Bucephalas, he sets out from his home in Ancient Greece to do just that. With historian Dominic Sandbrook as our guide, join Alexander on his incredible journey, travelling through the deserts of Egypt and over the snow-capped mountains of Persia all the way to India, defeating all who stand in his way. For anything is possible with the blessing of the gods...

    The Adventures in Time series brings the past alive for twenty-first century children. These stories are every bit as exciting as those of Harry Potter or Matilda Wormwood. The only difference is they actually happened...
