His version of History is a rumbustious collection of half-remembered facts, assembled roughly in the right order, and glued together with alarmingly confident misunderstanding. And yet our endearing narrator somehow inadvertently hits the nail on the head every time ? as when he sagely observes that the SuffragettesOCO hunger strikes paid off ?in the name of Female EmaciationOCO, or that before Shakespeare came along ?everyone had been a bit rubbish at poetryOCO (notwithstanding ?Jeffrey Chortler, saviour of the Middle AgersOCO).

Sam takes us from Ancient Egypt right up to Last Week with the flair of a bright-eyed nine-year-old. Rumour has it he is now working on an even more ambitious tome, The Entire World and Everything In It.
