An AMAZING talk, according to Gabe….

Last month we went to a presentation one evening at the kids’ school called “A History of the World in 20 Objects”. The presentation was given by author Christopher Lloyd, who wrote the book “What on Earth Happened”, and it was nothing short of amazing. The kids loved it, Matt and I loved it, and it’s actually resulted in multiple family discussions on historical events that have been both fun and interesting.

Brick Castle reviews Wallbook of British History

I love looking at new books with my children, and sometimes a different sort of book comes along that really makes us pay attention. The What On Earth? Wallbook Of British History is definitely very different – and very impressive.From outside the hardback cover the Wallbook Timeline Of British History looks like a regular large format book, but open it out and inside is a pocket magnifier, a 2 metre long pullout wallbook, and an 18 page copy of The Chronicle – a brilliant mock up of an imaginary newspaper.

Big ‘Thumbs-up’ for Big History Wallbook Timeline

"A beautifully illustrated pull-out wall chart covering all of time as we currently know it – from the Big Bang right up until the birth of Prince George –a faux-newspaper-style editorial, a crossword puzzle and a quiz, this book is as entertaining as it is interesting, and although it’s aimed at 7-14 year olds, it has appealed to all the family".

Chris captivates the crowd!

Early November, Gibraltar was the centre of the literary universe as it hosted the 3rd Gibraltar International Literary Festival. The small but magical event punches way above its weight with regards to the authors and talent it attracts. Kate Mosse, Joanne Harris, Maureen Lipman, Nicolas Parsons and of course, our very own Christopher Lloyd! This review is by audience member and blogger ‘Postcard from Gibraltar’.


‘A wall chart, newspaper, quizbook and intellectual “Where’s Wally”’

All in all, this is a really impressive publication. A fun and accessible way of presenting the history and timeline of nature. This would be a brilliant resource to keep at home and instantly makes me want to visit The Natural History Museum to see some of these things in the flesh (or bones when it comes to the dinosaurs!).
