'The Angry Aztecs fills you in on the foulest facts about Motecuhzoma, Cuahtemoc and other people with unpronounceable names, whose idea of fun was ripping out human hearts.

Want to know:

* why the Aztecs liked to eat scum?
* when the world is going to end?
* how to play a REALLY violent ball game?

Read on for human sacrifices, Mayan mysteries, sacrifices, a suffering slave's diary and more sacrifices.
Find out about powerful priests, weird warriors, and the cunning Conquistadors - who made the Aztecs very angry indeed.
History has never been so horrible!'

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

1. Terrible timeline
2. The mysterious Maya
3. The awful Aztecs
4. Eat like an Aztec
5. Aztec days
6. Live like an Aztec
7. The cunning conquistadors

with an introduction and an epilogue.

Written with the typical Deary humour, in a variety of fonts, and superb illustrations throughout from Martin Brown.

Just imagine burying your dead folks under your living room!? And the Maya finding cross-eyed children cute and having a way to make them so. This book has a lot of fun details, among the details of not so cute history. And this book should be taught in every school. Not only because it's fun and humorous, although it adds to the danger of children actually learning something. More because of this author's way of looking at historical "facts" and changes of time. It can be so hard to find books you want your young to read, you don't want them to judge without knowing the facts, you don't want them to assume that progress of time is in straight line forward only for the better, or always good. Here I think we have a book we can trust with our young minds. They might even develop thinking! And while you're at it, take the more harmless funny "facts" and tell to your very young, they will laugh too.

I really enjoyed this book. I had done a school project on the Aztecs, but I found that this book gave a lot more imformation. I would advise other people to go and buy this book. It doesn't take long to read if you're like me and get hooked to books!

I liked this book a lot and it only took me 1 week to read, because when I started to read it I just couldn't put it down. I'm also collecting the Horrible History series and so-far I only need 5 of the specials to complete the series.

A fantastic way to learn about history. Tells you all the facts that your teachers don't! My son got into these after watching it on CBBC. Very informative and factual, can't wait to collect them all.

I bought this for my daughter who is studying the Aztecs in year 3 (ages 7-8). The book is well written - funny and informative, and it's easy to jump to a particular section that is being studied at school. Would have liked to have seen some colour illustrations that would have kept a childs interest hooked for a bit longer.

Do not get this on kindle fire he. If you like the horrible history series as I do don't get this book on your kindle fire hd. It only shows the cartoons and not any of the writing. I read this book after I bought it and really enjoyed it but it is a shame that it does not work on the kindle

Im a big fan of Horrible Histories and this book was enjoyed by myself and children age 5 to 16. I should really give this book a 4 because the first copy i had was missing a few pages but i can't bring myself to do it because i love the books so much.
