4.0 out of 5 stars Edutainment, and that's okay by me April 24 2006
By Laurie J. Neverman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've purchased a number of Horrible History and Horrible Science books for my son, and he enjoys them very much. They are light reading and fairly simplistic, and may not be 100% accurate (I haven't read them all cover to cover), but they are also entertaining, humorous and engaging. He's gleaned an assortment of interesting facts from the series and this has led him to read more about history and science topics that he wouldn't normally cover at his age (if at all). I think they could be very useful for reluctant learners.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Romans are more Ruthless than your History Teacher May 6 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a book about the Romans, and it teaches you many things, for example whether or not you should go to that football game tonight, or if you should save your money (of course this is just some stuff about rome's wierd ideas). This book will teach you the cool stuff, like what kind of gladiators there are, and with funny islistrations, I highly reccomend this book to kids and >>history teachers<<!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Aug. 30 2010
By KP - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
According to my daughter, this is an awesome book. She loves all of the Horrible Histories books. She says that she loves that it doesn't lighten up the history at all. Most books for kids her age (11) will gloss over the nastier parts of history, while these definitely do not. We're going to visit Rome soon, and she's very excited that maybe she'll get to share some history that we don't know while we're there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the Rotten Romans!!! Sept. 1 2012
By Sebastian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is horrible Histories' second book on the Romans, after "The Rotten Romans." Well, the Rotten Romans was a HUGE let-down! It eas, essentially, just one book on Celt life during Roman times. This book was a huge step-up! It was one of the best in the series!!!
