• Shirley Hughes has created a new kind of non-fiction with this combination of sketchbook and history book . . . The ecleticism of the drawings inescapably places the grave and the frivolous side by side, but the book offers not only a useful timeline but also a valuable guide to how history used to look

    Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times
  • There is much to reflect on . . . This is a fascinating book for children and adults

    Kate Agnew, Guardian
  • A fascinating personal selection . . . One for the whole family to talk about

  • Richly narrative paintings and finely observed line illustrations are interwoven with fascinating details, capturing the atmosphere of an extraordinarily exciting era

    Good Book Guide
  • Brings the past to life in a new way

    Julia Eccleshare, Front Row, BBC Radio 4
