4.0 out of 5 stars Horatio is Hip
having taken my 6 year old Grandson to see the Victory, I wanted to find a fun follow-up. All the other books seemed dry, but this approaches Nelson's achievements with wit and humour. Perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good 'follow-on' from the 'Famous Lives/Famous People' series, for an older child., 27 Nov 2006
This review is from: Horatio Nelson and His Victory (Dead Famous) (Paperback)
From the popular DEAD FAMOUS series of books 'Horatio Nelson and his Victory'

'Horatio Nelson was dead famous when he was alive, and he became even more dead famous once he was dead. Even now, nearly 200 years later, most people know something about him. We asked a selection of ordinary passers-by what the name Nelson means to them...........Well if you carry on reading this book.........you'll be able to read about Nelson's amazing exploits........action-packed pages of exciting battles, passionate 'lurve' and very nasty dinners...........'

208 pages, split into chapters:

Introduction
Nelson in nappies
Messing about in boats
Nelson goes north
Nasty Nicaragua and nice Mrs Nisbet
What, no war?
Nipping off to Naples
So long, Toulon
Armless Horatio
Foiling the French
Nobbling Naples
Furious Fanny and little Horatia
Duffing up the Danes
The French are coming! (Maybe)
The great Merton makeover
Follow that fleet
Trafalgar
No more Nelson

Written in a variety of fonts with humorous black and white cartoon illustrations throughout.
