The energy and humour that kids so enjoyed in Steven Vinacour's lockdown broadcasts is all captured in the new book Tudor Tangle, as Ted travels back via the toilet bowl (don’t ask!), to the time of the Tudors and the court of Henry VIII, in search of advice from the chop-happy Tudor monarch himself. Steven has created another unputdownable, hilarious story that zips the reader through time and space (spoiler alert!), laughing out loud!
Ted has a secret: his toilet allows him to travel through time. Yes – really. All he has to do is climb in, press the flush and whisper a destination. In this adventure, he’s determined to win first prize for a school project so travels back to Roman times, coming face-to-face with 30,000 legionaries on their way to invade Britain; meanwhile, wearing an authentic toga to school really helps swing the competition his way. This popular series is full of toilet humour (to be fair, the author does apologise for that) and the kind of jokes children love, but it’s packed with historical facts too, including the quirky, memorable ones that really make history come alive. If you’re looking for more zany takes on Julius Caesar and friends, Gary Northfield’s Julius Zebra series is terrific, while Matt Brown has an equally funny take on time travel, though without the history, in the Compton Vallance books.
