Product description

The Stuarts. They don’t sound very terrible, do they? They sound almost like your boring next-door neighbours. But you’ll soon change your mind once you hear the sickening story which started when gibbering King James I took the throne. Now you can find out…

  • why some slimy Stuarts ate toads, snails and fleas
  • which king picked his nose and never washed his hands
  • why people wore fish on their feet (bleeugh!)

Plus there are the dreadful deeds of the revolting Roundheads, the gruesome truth about ghastly Guy Fawkes, tragic tales of women accused of witchcraft, and the ever-present threat of the perilous plague! The Stuarts have never been so sickening!

    Terry Deary has made a brilliant, educational set of books! They teach you all about how the people of the past live! I would recommend an age range of 8-12 for this book
