Amazing

Great and educational but quite gory at places
My daughter loved it though

Some people can get VERY disturbed at the "how to make a mummy" chapter

Tony Robinson is great

Educational for all ages, short chapters and lots of humour combined with Tony Robinson's brilliant delivery meant it kept everyone entertained.
