Robin has been set a class project about London and Grandad has the biggest surprise in store for him. With Charles Dickens showing them around, Robin is bound to learn more than a few things. Try not to lose track on the Underground though – there’s lots to see! Luckily they have The Magic Talking Book of the World’s Most Interesting People and Places to help them learn! With his magic spell, Grandad awakens a new historical figure to show them around the cities they visit. Each has a fascinating story to tell Robin, and helps to teach him some very important facts about the world and its history.
