I was introduced to the books on Tudors and Romans via the TV show by my youngest and wisest aquaintance and I marvel at how text books (well packaged for curious young minds and warped senses of humous) can be cool. This gallic addition to the mobile library turns travelling all the way to the south of France into a competitive fact throwing contest and actually is fun.

I like the series, they are funny and tell some of the lesser told parts of history.
One have to remember that they are written for 10-15 year old-ish.
the author have said that it is difficult not to write something wrong, because the first constants used to be considered the truth, but by the time the rest of the book had been written, those truths had been disproved.
Also a good theme in the books is that you shouldn't always believe what a historian have written, because the winner writes the history.

Since the whole family now knows the words to all the songs from the TV series this was a great back seat pacifier during our recent holiday. And the stories meant that the children were not bored when we did grown-up sightseeing as names from French history made sense and often inspired a snigger.

yet again another great horrible history book, bought this for a boy I know and who knows all the horrible histories. Luckily he hadn't read this one and it has kept him happy. If you like horrible histories you won't be disappointed with this one.

A light hearted book that helps you get to grips with the history of France, especially the French Revolution.Lots of gruesome facts given in a humorous way.Gives a sense of French history without gettting too bogged down in detail.

Great book full of lots of different historical facts. When you read the book you become absorbed in it and you can really picture all the events happening right there and then.
