The Story of the Olympics Reviews

witty and entertaining ... There's likely to be a slew of books about the Olympics before the Games open, but this one will take some beating: loads of information, engaging format and written with wit. 4/5 stars THE BOOK BAG perfect for keeping friends and family informed and plenty to talk about during the games. Lots of lesser-known facts, all amusingly presented and enhanced by the comical illustrations. The champions, the scandals, the records - they're all here. Great fun!
