Editorial Reviews


Following on from the success of Tudor Tales - combined sales of over 11,500 copies since June 2003 - another highly-illustrated historical fiction series which is destined to be just as successful, with an even wider international appeal.
One of the Tudor Tales, The Prince, the Cook and the Cunning King, has been chosen as a World Book Day 2004 Recommended Read.
The series has been widely acclaimed: "These are hilarious books full of all sorts of facts from the amusing to the stomach-churning" - Education Today. "A treat to savour" - Five to Eleven.
Egyptians is a subject area for study in Key Stage 2 History lessons. These stories are rooted firmly in historical fact.
Brilliantly illustrated with humour and attention to historical detail by top artist Helen Flook.

Format: Library Binding
I borrowed this book from the library to preview it before buying it for my son and I'm so glad that I did, it's pretty awful. The author should have considered the audience of this book before including some of the darker, disturbing details. It was completely unnecessary to the story line. I kept waiting for their to be a "lesson learned," a "moral," or a "changed heart," but that never happened. This is like reading the "bad guys" version of history and it's pretty awful and inappropriate for younger kids, in my opinion. I like several other books in this Historical Tales series, but the books written by Terry Deary are all like this. It's pretty much the "disturbing and awful" version of history.
