This interactive series will enthrall young and reluctant readers (Ages 8-12) by making them part of the story, inviting them to become the main character. Each book uses humorous illustrations to depict the sometimes dark and horrific side of life during important eras in history.
Your charges will include all sorts of people, from hardened criminals to people with mental illnesses-and you won't be expected to treat them kindly. This new extended edition includes a castle timeline, a guide to spooky castles, and some real-life grisly stories.
