Funny and engaging
"Smiles from Schooldays" is a funny, engaging and addictive read. Several times this week, I've started reading some of the rhyming couplets about one subject and found myself reading on, ending up in a totally different one. For anyone with any experience of school (and that's everyone), this book will jog memories and raise a smile. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it and would recommend "Smiles from Schooldays" to anyone with a sense of curiosity and fun.

Delightful read
Who is your favourite genius in history? Albert Einstein? Who is your favourite painter? Caravaggio? No matter who is your favourite historical character, John Hobson has provided a delightful couplet on most of them. A nice way to spend your time, and most important of all, to raise a big guaranteed smile. Most enjoyable!!

A light hearted read
“I particularly enjoyed the section on history. I enjoyed quite a number of the couplets, but I suppose my favourite was the one about Wellington on page 21.”
