Overview

Meet some of history's most illustrious and interesting characters in this book that visits key moments of the past from around the world. When young Augustus falls asleep in history class, Professor Tempo decides to teach him a lesson and show him that history isn't boring at all

She hands him a magic diary, all he needs to do is write the time and place to travel there. Together they head out on a whistle-stop tour of history through the ages to meet some of the world's finest explorers, inventors, leaders, writers, composers and painters, including Albert Einstein, Mozart, Louis XIV, Shakespeare, Leonardo Da Vinci, Christopher Columbus Genghis Khan, Emperor Titus in Rome, athletes at the very first Olympic Games, Tutankhamen in Egypt, and even Palaeolithic man as he discovers fire.

Each double page spread introduces a different time and place, with an introductory text from Augustus which explains the sights and sounds, and accompanying captions from the Professor which provide key facts. A character index at the rear gives a short biography of all the historical characters covered, and a timeline helps to contextualize the different time periods covered.

After a boy named Augustus dares suggest to his teacher that history is boring, she gives him a magic diary that sends them on a tour of the past, beginning with the first fire one million years ago and ending with Neil Armstrongs moon walk. The boys upbeat narrative chronicles each step of the journey: When you think of a genius, you think of Einstein, right? I had to see the great man for myself, so I paid a visit to the Big Apple in the 1930s. Stevensons digital art brings an off-kilter collaged look to the halls of Versailles, the invention of the printing press, and more; text bubbles dot the images, identifying important individuals and other trivia. While Augustuss transformation from disinterested to actively engrossed is essentially instantaneous, the multitude of historical tidbits should keep readers occupied. Ages 710. (Oct.)
