I paid £2.28 but when it arrived it had a sticker on the cover showing 49p. It's still very cheap but you could have removed the sticker so I don't feel so cheated!

Brilliant book. My 7 year old daughter loves Horrible Histories. She's taken the book into school to share with her teacher and classmates.

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.

Want to know:

* which emperor enjoyed eating camel's heels?
* how a cow on your roof could bring you bad luck?
* the name of the Roman goddess of door hinges?

Read on for the gory details about the cruel Colosseum and the people and animals who were massacred here.
Run screaming from the reality of life as a Roman soldier and terrorize your teacher with our foul facts about the Romans.
History has never been so horrible!'

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

1. Killer kings and the rotten republic
2. Superior superstitions and quaint customs
3. Gory gladiators
4. Ruthless Roman army
5. Evil enemies
6. Ruthless Roman quiz
7. Roman Empire timeline
8. Evil emperors
9. A few foul facts...
10. Marvellous medicine
11. Awful for animals
12. Painful plays
13. Cruel for criminals

with an introduction and an epilogue.

Written with the typical Deary humour and illustrations from Martin Brown throughout.
