The Lovereading4Kids comment
History as it is never taught in schools is given a stylish brush up in this witty guide to all kinds of obscure events – some with more truth than others – never heard before but important to know. Obscure facts, like how Emperor Nero sneaked poison into his brother Britannicus’ drink which gives a vivid example of his legendary cruelty, bring the past to life by revealing the characters in it. Dipping in and out of this feast of fine stories is a delight – and informative too.
Philip Ardagh's Book of Kings, Queens, Emperors and Rotten Wart-nosed Commoners by Philip Ardagh
PARP! Pssst! Do you know the story about Queen Elizabeth I (1533-1603) and the, er, farting courtier? One day, when bowing low to Her Majesty, the Earl of Oxford couldn't help but break wind. The poor man felt SO embarrassed that he left the court - and some say the country - for SEVEN years. Upon his return, after such a long absence, the first thing Good Queen bess said on seeing him was, Lord, I had forgot the fart!
