About the Author

Tony Robinson has been a writer since he was old enough to pick up a pencil. He’s written long stuff (last year he wrote a history of Australia), and shorter stuff (like this). He’s rewritten old stories (like the ones about Odysseus and Theseus), and made up new ones (for instance his children’s TV series Tales from Fat Tulip’s Garden). But history is what he likes best, because he says 'How do you know who you are if you don’t know where you came from?' That’s why he’s written Tony Robinson’s Weird World of Wonders, and he doesn’t want to stop until he’s covered every single bit of history there’s ever been; although in order to do this he’ll have to live till he’s 8,374.
Sir Tony Robinson is most famous for playing the role of Baldrick in Blackadder but he made his first professional appearance at the age of thirteen in the original stage version of Oliver! and went on to appear with the Chichester Festival Theatre, the RSC and the National Theatre.
