Want to know:
* how to be very rude without anybody knowing?

Read this book for some potty proverbs, wacky word games, ridiculous writers and rotten riddles.
Ever suffered a spelling test or grappled with grammar?
Get your revenge with some really wicked words - even English teachers will be speechless!
History has never been so horrible!'
The Horrible History (HH) 'Specials' may appear to be on the expensive side but they are slightly bigger than the regular HH series, standing around 8.5" high and this one has 192 pages, written in a variety of fonts and is packed full of black and white illustrations & cartoons.
Written with typical Deary humour:
e.g. From the 'Daft Definitions' chapter:
'Egress' - This word means the same as 'Exit' (so you could say it's a pretty 'way out' word). Not many people know that. So an American showman called Phineas Barnum used it when he had problems with visitors ............
e.g. Did you know..........?
Some clever person worked out that 'smiled' is probably the longest word in the world........but why?
Answer: Because there is a mile between the first letter and the last. Boom-boom!
Mix up the letters of Charles Dickens and you get Rash Neck Sliced - ideal for the author of 'A Tale of Two Cities'.'
