Description

How do you sum up the world of politics in just 100 words? This striking book takes on the challenge! Each of the carefully chosen 100 words has its own 100-word long description and beautiful illustration, providing a thoughtful, unbiased introduction to key political terms and ideas to help the young (and not so young) get to grips with the subject. Basically everything you need to know in a nut shell. Along with some expected words, such as 'government' and 'vote', you'll also discover less predictable words that will give you a fresh perspective. Finally, you'll  be asked, ‘if you were to choose the 100 words, which would you pick?’

She has written several children's books, including the bestseller The Election from Fisherton Press. Eleanor worked in politics and journalism, prior to having children, and retains a huge interest in ensuring children learn about this subject and parents and teachers are equipped to teach them. Eleanor lives in London with her husband and three children.

Paul Boston studied illustration and design at Brighton University, and is inspired by 1950s children’s books, antique maps and diagrams, 17th Century engravings, Gothic art and Japanese prints.
