All of Graeme Base's books are wonderful, and this is no exception. It is visually spectacular (what else would you expect with such a topic!) and the narrative keeps you entertained as well.

This is a book which has universal appeal. It is fantastic enough to appeal to younger readers, and has enough impact as an "art" book to appeal to people who like great visual books on their coffee tables.

It is a lovely, witty and frivolous book. Just what everyone needs!
