Strap on your laughter goggles as you embark on a time-travelling journey through the funniest and maddest moments in history. From the Stone Age to Medieval times from the Great Fire to the First World War to one million years in the future it’s all here – and it’s all completely crazy. Meet the town’s most famous residents including: Natboff the caveman! Princess Snowflake! A malcontent squirrel! Strange Mildred the witch! A talking grape called Plover! Cribbins the mysterious Victorian inventor who invented mysterious Victorian things! And plenty more besides! Packed full of stories poems an extremely odd history of the British monarchy and even a `Shakespearian’ play (penned by William’s less-famous brother Terry) – and with plenty of Easter eggs for Mr Gum fans to spot along the way – this book is perfect for fans of Horrible Histories Roald Dahl and David Walliams.
