Format: Paperback
This books are wonderful. They make learning history fun and cool. It combines jokes, historical facts and funny information in a great easy-to-read package. My 4th grader loves the whole series. Both reluctant readers and history lovers will enjoy the breezy way history is told in these books. Ideal for 3rd-5th graders and even middle school students. Great as gifts or for a classroom. Too bad all history books aren't this fun!

Format: Paperback
I was very excited when I first about the "Horrible Histories" series. But, after reading the "Rotten Romans," I question the historic accuracy of the series. I do not claim to be an expert on Romans, but I have taught the topic for 8+ years (although I'm sure Mr. Deary would not consider me anything but an morron considering his references to teachers in this book)and I have found some incorrect items, example: the Romans used the "thumbs down" for life and the "thumbs up" for death not the reverse, as Mr. Deary says in the book. Read it for fun not for historical research.

The Rotten Romans has very good jokes. It has poems written by Roman poets in it. It has got all about the Celts and Roman feasts. It is beautifully written. It also has amazing facts about Boudicca and Roman baths.

I have read nearly all of the books in the Horrible Histories Series and I love them! The reader is drawn into the world of the Romans and is given truthful information on all of the wars and emperors in a calm, relaxed, even humorous fasion. Nobody likes learning lists of dated and rulers. The Horrible Histories books are nothing like that. They really draw you into their world and you feel as if you are going back in time to the streets of Rome under Caligula's rule and feel like a Roman. This is a great way to learn history in a relaxing environment. It's a great way to escape your troublesome world and enter the world of the Rotten Roman's! I recommend it to anyone!

This was the first horrible history book I got, and I got it when I was in Britain. I fell in love with this book, it was soo funny I had to get more. It is a great book to learn about history. I love them so much I couldn't put the book down. When I came back home to the U.S. I couldn't find any of these books, but I've read the ones I already had over and over. From now on, I'll have to order more of them.

Format: Paperback
Terry Deary takes a humorous look at Ancient Rome, and it is enjoyable, but I don't think it deserves the kudos that most people are giving it. The book really doesn't give children an accurate view of the Roman Empire. Too much space is devoted (in a very small book) to Britannia, and not enough to Rome itself. There's far too great a tendency to point out the ridiculous, and not enough nearly zero) to chronological facts. Hence, while intersting reading, I don't think young people will really learn much about Roman History from this book.

This Horrible Histories book is about the Romans (who were rotten.)How long you'd be in the army, what rewards you'd get in the army and all that stuff.I won't tell you the rest. Just find the book and read it! Bye. Siobahn /shuvon/
