Synopsis

Groovy Greeks Presents 'Orrible Olympics by Terry Deary

Apparently the ancient Greeks were a rather groovy bunch. The boys didn't start school until they were seven, and girls didn't have to go at all. But it wasn't always so jolly. Readers can discover who had the world's first flushing toilet and why dedicated doctors tasted their patients' ear wax! With a bold, accessible new look, these bestselling titles are sure to be a huge hit with yet another generation of Terry Deary fans. Revised by the author and illustrated throughout to make Horrible Histories more accessible to young readers. 2013 is HORRIBLE HISTORIES twentieth anniversary.
