4.0 out of 5 stars Corny, Factual Fun March 8 2008
A fun, fact-filled short program that children from Grades 4 - 8 will enjoy, no matter how corny or unsophisticated the animation (adds to its charm). Check out the entire series under "Horrible Histories".

5.0 out of 5 stars Page-turning history! Sept. 24 2008
By BronxD - Published on Amazon.com
I teach 5th Grade history, I mean "social studies", and let me tell you, as a teacher, I'm always on the hunt for material that will engage my students (and myself). The Horrible Histories series, and "The Angry Aztecs" in particular, are a godsend. My students and I love the information in the book and the humorous way it's presented (the illustrations are great, too).

I've read other books in the series, and the author shines the same light on the unfortunate aspects of every culture he presents (see "The Measly Middle Ages" for a great take on Europe). If nothing else, you will be grateful to be living in the USA in this day and age when you're through with the book.

Human beings have been (and continue to be) horrible to each other, but if we can learn how to move away from superstition and learn from history's mistakes, we'll be better off. These books will help in this endeavor.

The book was fun and I learnt lots about the angry Aztecs. I recommend it to other kids, a great read I couldn't put down.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should be titled "How to Make (the descendants of) Aztecs Angry" April 13 2007
By EdAnthro - Published on Amazon.com
This is apparently the fourth book in a series that considers "teaching history" to be synonymous with promoting racist stereotypes about "people with unpronounceable names." Sure, the Aztecs spent time on both ends of bloody conquests, but since when are genocide and enslavement topics for grade school humor? If you're a parent, you might want to check your school library to see if they're spending your tax dollars on this junk. Better yet, write the publisher (Scholastic) and tell them what you think.
