Rowdy Revolutions

(1999)
(A book in the Horrible Histories Special series)
A novel by

 
Terry Deary's Horrible Histories have stunned and amazed a whole generation of eager beavers who like their history with the nasty bits left in. Fabulously factual but with a sprinkling of gleeful gore, Deary has no fear of getting well and truly stuck in to the historical nastiness that more traditional historians avoid.

This time Deary plunges the depths of the revolution rat-race through the ages and comes up with endless knock-em-dead gore that leaves the reader in little doubt that there is more to history than pretty kings and queens flouncing around the countryside in flowing robes.

From the big-headed General Publius Quintilius Varus in AD 9 through to Nicoloae Ceausescu in latter day Romania all manner of dodgy dictators and subsequent uprisings are examined in gloriously gruesome detail, making Rowdy Revolutions a must for lovers of the kind of hilarious historical information that you just don&#185;t get in the classroom. (Ages 7 to 11) --Susan Harrison
