'Did you know?
Pharaohs were buried with mummies of animals.
Cats were popular but they also made mummies out of mice, fish, crocodiles, snakes and bulls!'
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.
I had a read and the puns and colourful descriptions are really grabbing.

Fantastic books, this one is great fun and very educational. Can't wait for a new one to come out. These books should be used in schools for a more fun way to learn about history.Published 12 months ago by debs41
