Read full description of the books:
In The Awesome Egyptians the persistent delving into the toilet of history by author Terry Deary and cohort Peter Hepplewhite leaves no stone - or rather, Pyramid - unturned in this hilariously vile Horrible History.
How to make your own mummy, how to test the theory that pyramids have magical powers and, among all the handy hints and tips, a few tales of dodgy Pharaohs and their nasty habits.
Anyone who ever thought they knew all they needed to know about the Egyptians and their strange ways will be amazed at the gaps in their knowledge as they discover which king had the most blackheads, unusual ways Victorians displayed their mummies and how to become a true Egyptian peasant in ten easy (or, in fact, rather difficult) stages.
The Awesome Egyptians will tickle the fancy of readers young and old, giving hieroglyphics and bandages a whole new, never to be forgotten meaning. --Susan Harrison
