Review:

For any high school student, History is one of the boring subjects with lot of facts and numbers to be remembered. But History is a subject that should be the most interesting thing happening in the high school or a middle school. David’s adventure to the past is one such book which I can blindly recommend to the high school students.

The story starts off with the painting enthusiast David and his Master travelling to the pre historic period to learn the origin of Art. What I see in this story is the perspective of the history, the need to bring in perspective to anything we see. The author and Illustrator have brought in the life to the character and particularly they have wokeup the kid in me.

I strongly recommend this book to any kid who hates history or who is not interested studies. Its not a preachy one, but it is a must read book that can help a kid to see the world better. Kudos to the team, Hope they continue the franchise.
