Review quote

"Mitch knows more totally useless things about useless subjects than anybody on Earth" Chris Tarrant "This is just the sort of information to give children a background to history and hopefully encourage them to delve a little deeper into this fascinating subject. They will love to appal parents, friends and teachers with the gruesome facts in the book - and the illustrations are just as gruesome." Parents in Touch (www.parentsintouch.co.uk) "Animals, creepy crawlies and the human body are tackled in a Horrible Histories way, and each book is packed with the sort of disgusting trivia that delights children under eight." -- Toby Clements The Telegraphshow more
