'....the gory details about the Incan Empire......'
on 20 March 2007
'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:
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.
