About the Author:

Jilly Hunt has over 15 years experience of educational publishing. Formerly an editor for Pearson, Jilly is now a freelance children's writer and editor. She has written more than 15 non-fiction books for children and young adults. She graduated from Oxford Brookes University with BA Honours in Publishing and History of Art. She now lives in Oxfordshire with her husband two small children.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-7-These books highlight the TV, movies, music, fashion, art, and major events of each decade of the 20th century. Unfortunately, they are dotted with pesky problems. Stilted, weak writing produces silly euphemisms (such as James Bond "found time to date many beautiful women"), and the set's design is uninspired. "Yuppie" is wrongly defined as "young upwardly mobile professional"; the 3-D film craze is said to have passed quickly even though such movies continue to be blockbuster hits, and there are some unhelpful glossary entries. For example, in 1900-1919, the one for "honky-tonk" gives the same definition as the main text. Flaws such as these build a strong case for the unreliability of these retrospectives as report material. The well-selected photographs and reproductions and abundant back matter aren't enough to bring them up to snuff. α(c) Copyright 2011.
