In The News

"Tales of Ancient Worlds is a wonderful gift for any child of elementary to middle school age. But I would not hesitate to start a child as young as 4 on this book as an evening reader. The illustrations alone are enough to invoke curiosity and start discussion." -- Archaeology Review

"A high point of the book is that appropriate credit is given to Indigenous custodians of heritage worldwide, such as the Mirarr traditional owners of Madjedbebe... this book will delight anyone with a budding interest in archaeology." --Nature
