From there, each page is brimming with pages that document the events of the war, including major happenings such as the Battle of the Somme and Tsar Nicholas II’s abdication.

Although the centenary books were of a reasonable quality and went down well as Christmas gifts, my experience wasn't great. Having ordered 2 books, only 1 was dispatched and I had to chase the 2nd one. No explanation offered as to what had happened .Although this issue was resolved, when ordering online the ability to execute an order and get it right first time is just as important as the product.
Lovely book, my grandson will love feeling like a helpful big brother , love the space for photo too

Loved the dinosaur book!
Loved the dinosaur book and so will our grandson on his birthday and the presentation box for the recipe book. But a little disappointed with the small text and sticker only in the recipe book not actually printed in the book to whom presented .....to etc... The articles in the book aren't very clear...but the service was great.

A book about dinasaurs for a 3 year old! As the book was for a 3 year old I was…
As the book was for a 3 year old I was a bit worried the book would be too advanced for him as it was aimed at a 4 year old. However, my grandson loved everything about the book and educationally has managed to learn all of the names of the dinasaurs which were quite complex! The design, the colours used and the language all fired up his imagination. Thank you, I will certainly recommend this to friends.
