Diary Of A Time Traveler: Meet Over One Hundred Of History’s Biggest Superstars

Diary fo a Time travelerIt all started when a boy named Augustus fell asleep in his boring history class, but thanks to his creative teacher, Professor Tempo, and his magic notebook, history comes alive. He and his teacher travel back in time to 1 Million BC in Africa when people first used fire, then make 28 more stops at important points in Earth’s history, and end in 1969 when man walked on the moon. Other highlights explored are Stonehenge, the early Olympics in Greece, The Great Wall in China, the end of slavery, and the advent of women’s suffrage. They meet explorers, inventors, leaders, writers, and more, such as Leif Erikson, Genghis Khan, Johannes Gutenberg, Michelangelo, William Shakespeare, Sacagawea, Marie Curie, and Duke Ellington. The text contains many amusing and interesting facts and is illuminated by fun, digitally created illustrations. An index is included. mjw
