 About the Book 

Of the books in the series, this one is the most readable that Ive read so far. In the other books (e.g., Greece, The Vikings), each story is given only a couple of pages. The characters never feel like characters and the plot is too sparse to feel like much of a story. In this book, the stories are developed over more pages which allows the characters to become recognizable as distinct personalities. My biggest complaint with the other books was that I couldnt imagine that such flat characters and sparse plots could maintain kids attention. However in this book, Husain is much more successful on both fronts. I dont think theyre exactly gripping stories as theyre presented here, but they are at least stories.
