"Brilliant!" -

My 9 year-old daughter and 6 year-old son loved all of these. Great fun to read.

"History made fun and exciting" -

Haven't read the whole collection yet but so far DELIGHTED with these texts. My son, 6 and a half and a keen reader, is absolutely enthralled by the stories - particularly "King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table". The illustrations are fabulous - boys especially will love them. I thought the books made quite complicated tales and facts very accessible and fascinating. Certainly not for younger readers than 6, though - the comic strip style and number of words/long names etc would be too much to handle.

"Not suitable" -

These books don't teach history or classical characters. They are too long and young children get confused. They appear silly in the eyes of youngsters and the content is too long. The whole collection is very disappointing.

"Books with wow factor" -

These are the best picture versions of classic stories. Good from about 6, but still read years later. They were my children's introduction to the complete texts.

"Marcia Williams Collection" -

I would not recommend this book for 6 year olds as it's a comic book. My girl didn't even look in it but usually she can spend days staring inside the books and reading them. Front is very small so they can't read it on their own. Probably this collection will be great for comic's fans.
