The Rotten Romans is a really good book if you're learning about ancient Rome, or anytime you need a good book. It makes jokes ("Dad's mad, Blad") and gives interesting information you don't find anywhere else (Did you know the Celts admired their hair so much that they didn't wear helmets in battle?). It tells stories and has made-up diaries of a warrior. It is a really funny book, and if you liked it, there are lots and lots of other Horrible Histories. There's the Awesome Egyptians, Measly Middle Ages, Vicious Vikings, and Groovy Greeks. There are also Vile Victorians, Angry Aztecs, Terrible Tudors, and Blitzed Brits (not available online). Hope you enjoy this book!
