Weird World of Wonders - World War I

With a lively narrative Tony Robinson has created a light and entertaining chapter book which deals with an important historical period.

Tony Robinson’s Weird World of Wonders – World War II is part of an entertaining series, bringing history to life with Robinson’s unique slant.

Introducing Hitler as ‘a weirdly weird weirdo with a crazy gleam in his eyes’ Robinson effectively sets the scene for WWII, explaining how it came to be.

He describes Hitler’s rise to power – ‘he was mad as a box of frogs’ – before turning attention to other key political figures and their involvement. Churchill is introduced as a ‘large funny-looking man who wore a bowler hat.’

Snippets of quirky information are constantly introduced – great facts that are going to stick in little minds I’m sure.

Del Thorpe’s illustrations, alongside primary resources, are used to deepen understanding and at certain key points they provide a little light relief. 

The value comes in Robinson’s detail – he covers all manner of topics. Evacuees, The Battle of Britain, Hitler Youth, air raids, spies and Japan are all included.

This is a rich resource for someone new to the topic.

Overall it’s Robinson’s tone; his ability to create an interesting, engaging narrative that makes this an great go-to chapter book. He finds the right balance between amusing and serious – perfect for the audience and subject matter.

Tony Robinson’s Weird World of Wonders – World War II is perfect for ensuring a new generation is clued up on a very important period in history.

Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Awards 2014.
