about

When his teacher sets the class a History project, Sam cannot choose which bit of History he prefers, so decides to do ALL OF IT. His version of History is a rumbustious collection of half-remembered facts, assembled roughly in the right order, and glued together with alarmingly confident misunderstanding. And yet our endearing narrator somehow inadvertently hits the nail on the head every time - as when he sagely observes that the Suffragettes' hunger strikes paid off 'in the name of Female Emaciation', or that before Shakespeare came along 'everyone had been a bit rubbish at poetry' (notwithstanding 'Jeffrey Chortler, saviour of the Middle Agers'). Sam takes us from Ancient Egypt right up to Last Week with the flair of a bright-eyed nine-year-old. Rumour has it he is now working on an even more ambitious tome, The Entire World and Everything In It.
