Awful Egyptians (Horrible Histories)
Terry Deary returns to one of the most popular of the Horrible Histories topics and reveals more disgusting details about the awesome ancients, their groovy gods, potty pyramids and of course, their mad mummies. Readers can find out how a hunted hippo got his own back on a phoul pharaoh and discover the truth about the cool queen Cleo and the curse of Tutankhaumun. There's also a top ten of phunny pharaohs, a mad mummies quiz and lots of foul facts about the messy mistakes the Egyptians made before becoming mummy-making experts. History has never been so horrible!
