Tony Robinson's Weird World of Wonders! Egyptians by Tony Robinson

The first in a fantastically funny new history series from the acclaimed Tony Robinson.

Tony Robinson takes you on a headlong gallop through time, pointing out all the most important, funny, strange, amazing, entertaining, smelly and disgusting bits about the Egyptians! It's history, but not as we know it! Find out everything you ever needed to know in this brilliant, action-packed, fact-filled book including: - Why the gods looked so strange - Why tomb raiding is a bad idea - Why they loved cats, and - How to make a mummy in eight easy steps.

Although Tony is better known for his television work (including 'Blackadder' and 'Time Team') he is already an award winning children’s author; his book The Worst Children’s Jobs in History won the Best Book with Facts category at the Blue Peter Book Awards.
