What on Earth Publishing is delighted to present its latest timeline book, The Magna Carta Chronicle. Produced in partnership with the Magna Carta 800th Trust, the book combines a newspaper, fold-out timeline, crossword, quiz and souvenir copy of the Magna Carta itself
Designed as a the ultimate souvenir guide to the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta in 2015, the Magna Carta Chronicle charts the fight for freedoms over 800 years with more than a hundred beautifully hand drawn illustrations.
The combination of newspaper articles, timeline and quiz provide a highly accessible way for young and not-so-young people to explore the amazing stories of how freedoms and liberties have been won over the centuries. It also highlights how fragile many of them still are today…
An interesting, engaging read and beautifully illustrated. The book succeeds in enthusing and educating the younger reader to the huge significance of its subject matter, while reminding the rest of us just how much it has influenced global societal structures for centuries.
Bought this for my son - but ended up reading it myself. Loads of interesting facts, brilliantly laid out - easy to read and take in. I learnt a lot! This is no boring history book - would highly recommend to both kids and adults
An excellent explanation of the Magna Carta and how it came about. Plenty of amusing illustrations and illustrations to capture a child' imagination. Well timed for the 800th anniversary .
This is what I did not have when I was a kid, so did not really ever truly understand the significance of Magna Carta....my grandchildren do not have that problem now.....this is right up to date, with today's events, so from then till now, having complete relevance to this 800 year old event
