'Every Governement lies to its people! In Italy, theirs said that they had bombed Britain so bad that they had shot the Loch Ness Monster and killed it!
"That must have been messy!"
"No, it was Nessie!"
Superb wit and wisdom mix to make this one of the best of the audiobooks from the utterly fantastic, Mr Deary!
Was reluctant to buy after seeing it on tv, but then read another review above from a junior school teacher who ordered it for his class, so figured it was ok.
So glad I did.
Working through the rest of the Horrible History titles now!
What a fantastic way to get kids interested in history!
In contrast, this book would enthuse any Year 7 pupil (and in my case 40+) to do a GCSE in History or just be grateful for our freedom and the fact that we can read a book like this!
Want to know why wearing white knickers could get you killed in the Second World War?'
The usual Deary humour flows through the 136 pages packed with facts, written in a variety of type styles, full of black & white illustrations/cartoons, from Martin Brown.
Split into chapters:
1. Terrible timeline
2. Home horrors
3. Frightful fighting
4. Awesome animals
5. Lousy liars
6. Chilling for children
7. The Holocaust
with an introduction & an epilogue.
Read on for curious quizzes, rotten recipes, gruesome games and much more.
History has never been so horrible!'
'23rd August 1939:
Shock! Deadly enemies unite! Mr Adolf Hitler of Germany (with a toothbrush moustache) and Mr Josef Stalin of the Soviet Union (with a yard-brush moustache) peacefully agree not to fight one another.
Never trust a man with a moustache...
1st September 1939:
A. Hitler (the liar) had promised not to invade Poland. Today his army invades Poland...... and `peacefully' shares it with the Soviets. No one asked the Poles, of course.
Britain and France say they'll fight for Poland's freedom.
That means war!...'
She says it's funny with interesting facts.
