"I really enjoyed reading this book because it answers all the questions you could think of about the Edinburgh Castle. I also love how all the facts are in short punchy statements, and that there is an activity to fill in on each page to make it more fun. This is my favourite fact… did you know a beer drinking elephant once lived in the castle?"
