This book was so good. All the other history books I've read are really boring, and usually I'm not interested in the Ancient Greeks. I've got this book and my favourite part was the seige of Troy! Terry Deary is one of my favourite authors and he and Martin Brown make the best history books ever! It's really funny and easy to understand. The Ancient Gods of Greece were really "gruesome gods"! This book made me want to learn more about the Groovy Greeks. So I was very happy when we were learning about it at school. I was pleased to say that I knew lots of this stuff because I had read it all in the Groovy Greeks. I lent my book to My teacher and she really liked it too. I don't know who wouldn't! Well, I would recommend it to anyone! I want to read more Horrible Histories now!

This book takes you back into the time of the Greeks. Although not very acurate or complete with characters, this book would be nice beginner for a person who is just beginning to study Greek and/or Greek Mythlogy. It may be an average book, but it was a little lenghty, too drawn out with commical things and over use of commical things. I was bored with the last few pages, which made me not really want to finish. They used "groovy" and words like that too many times to my liking.

You have no idea how much I love this book! I got it at a book fair in elementary school, and it was my absolute favorite! But when we moved, it got lost, and I had given up looking for it. Now, I was looking for something and happened upon it...I bought it right away and, even though I am not in elementary any more, it is still a really great book. I think anyone who wants to learn about greek anything should start with this book which makes the facts fun!

the absolutely hysterical illustrations caught my eye at first(martin brown- I'm a huge fan now!) . then I started reading it and I was hooked by the great style in which it introduces the basic history. humorless people that expect a serious historical textbook need not bother- this hilarious series just gives you an outline of the period. I also recommend the "terrible tudors". I loved it!

That book is one of the funniest and most interesting history books - not only for children - I have ever seen. The text is interesting and really hilarious as well as the illustrations! P.S.: I am sure that you'll learn more about the 'groovy' Greeks by reading this book than listening to any teacher in school! cj/at

I have some of Deary's other Horrible Histories books. The Groovy Greeks can sometimes be Groovy Geeks but the book is Superb. The multitude of diferrent cartoons and Comic Strips is appealing to me- AND my History Teacher.
