5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Addition To The Horrible Histories Set...
This is one of the best books in the Multi award winning Horrible Histories series. Beautifully complimented with artwork from Martin Brown. Terry Deary is a gifted writer, and I hope he will write Horrible Histories to his last breath. An excellent book. 10/10

4.0 out of 5 stars '....the gory details about the Incan Empire......', 20 Mar 2007
This review is from: The Incredible Incas (Horrible Histories) (Paperback)
'The Incredible Incas gives you the gory details about the Incan Empire, which ruled 12 million people but was smashed by 260 Spanish invaders.....and a few germs.

Want to know:

* why llamas wore earrings and drank beer?
* how a bucket of stewed pee can make you beautiful?
* why servants ate the emperor's hair?

Read on for some gob-smacking facts on glittering golden temples and chilling child sacrifices.
Predict your future with inflated llama lungs, find out how to please a 200-year old mummy, and meet the ugliest emperor ever.
History has never been so horrible!'

A witty, colourful cover opens to 127 pages, split over chapters:

1. Timeline
2. Legendary lords
3. Evil emperors
4. Top of the class
5. Live like an Inca
6. The cruel conquest
7. Terrific temples
8. Groovy gods
9. Inca mystery quiz

with an introduction and an epilogue.

Written with the typical Deary humour and illustrations from Philip Reeve throughout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Murdering innocent llamas, marching slaves up towers!, 29 Dec 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Incredible Incas (Horrible Histories) (Paperback)
This is a fascinating book like the others but this is about Incas. Find out why llamas wore earings and drank beer, why servants ate the emporers hair and the poor children who were sacrificed along with guinea pigs to please the Gods. A great read......

I found this book really naughty, didn't like it at all... Doesn't teaches to much about what the Real Incas were...I wouldn't recommend it. Disappointing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, 15 July 2011
I bought this for my,Grandson, who incidently thinks it is fantastic.
Terry Deary has no doubt got a fine talent,and puts what could be a dreary subject over so well,imust be honest i to enjoyed these Incas,and yes i did flinch once or twice.
These Horrible Histories ara a great series,to buy,it gives a young child an insight into what to expect before they have the subject at school.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the Incas and I love this humor!, 3 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Incredible Incas (Horrible Histories) (Paperback)
If there is more to know about the Incas you don't miss it when reading this book. Take it from an Inca fan that learned everything she knows about the beginning of the Incas from this book, and had a great time! This book should be taught in every school. It has the facts, funny and sad details, and even the time line, and most important it is made understandable and enjoyable! Kids could actually learn from this! If you are a fun or not fun at all teacher, your prayers have been answered. Even the pictures are inspiring, you and your kids will have so much fun! I even took the more harmless funny facts, like how the priests fooled their people, and told to my 6 and 7 years old children in school. And they loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, that was a great book!, 17 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Incredible Incas (Horrible Histories) (Paperback)
The Incredible Incas was great! If of course you avoid the bad parts, like the disgusting bits that I will not say right now because it would make you feel ill. Like CENSORED. Gross! If you exclude the gross bits you would learn a lot about the Incas from this book, I never knew they used dried llama toenails in their shaker bracelets. (Isn't THAT a gross bit?!?!)
