Horrible Histories: Slimy Stuarts (Classic Edition)

The classic bestseller! No more boring nice-guy nonsense about history. It’s time to learn it the horrible way. Which means taking a look at the Stuarts. Yes, really! OK, maybe you’ve never heard of the Stuarts. They don’t sound very terrible, do they? But this book will tell you different! They ate toads, snails and fleas, and wore fish on their feet. Ugh! They had a nose-picking king who never washed his hands. Plus – there was fire, plague, the Gunpowder Plot and a savage civil war. Get the horrid facts – then test your teacher!
