I am a sucker for quizzes. Although I had never heard of an Odyssey Grid, that in itself drew me to explore “History Riddles”. Not knowing much about a subject has never stopped me from embarking on a quiz. After all it is a learning process and next time round I may well have the golden answer when it crops up in the pub trivia quiz.
There is nothing trivia about “History Riddles”. This book strikes me as an educator’s bible. The format, the information and the fun factor all add up to an inspirational read.
I commissioned (with chocolate bars and fizzy drinks) a group of teenage history buffs to join me on the journey through history as we worked our way through the pages a chunk at a time.
Of course their young minds gave me a right showing up with their knowledge of historical characters and events. If this book had been around when I was at school I am sure it would have drawn me towards the subject. Combined with the professional style of writing and basic but appropriate cover, this book is a winner in my opinion.
I urge all head teachers out there to get this on their school book list for next term.
