Summary

The past can be scary—so brace yourself for a hilariously bloodcurdling ride through time.
                                                      
Q. Why do mummies never take a vacation?
A. Because they’re afraid to relax and unwind.
 
History can be really grisly—and sometimes gross and funny, too. Take a trip back in time and find out about Roman toilets (which were never cleaned!), food in the Middle Ages (stuffed porpoise stomach), and creepy cures (boiled worms), as well as executions, the Black Death, and the worst jobs you wouldn’t want to do. Even as you shudder at once was, you’ll laugh out loud at the hysterical historical jokes, riddles, limericks, and puns!
