Product description


'More serious historians will relish Spot the Mistake: Land of Long Ago... This large, lively book taps into children’s delight in gloating over grownup errors, encouraging critical scrutiny along the way.' ― The Guardian

'With its beautifully embossed hard cover and cartoonlike illustrations…I found my 13-year-old and her two friends huddled over it, pointing to the pictures and (I swear) saying "This is cool!"' ― New York Times

'This is fun' ― The Bookseller
