Horrible Histories: Amazing Aztecs or Horrible Histories: Angry Aztecs is another phenomenal book chock full of trivia facts and witty jokes in the Horrible Histories series. Just like other Horrible Histories books, there are tons of quizzes and lots of facts to stump your teacher. Some other books in the series I have read are: Horrible Histories: Awesome Egyptians, Horrible Histories: Rotten Romans, Horrible Histories: Measly Middle Ages, Horrible Histories: Frightful First World War, Horrible Histories Handbooks: Trenches, Horrible Histories Handbooks: Knights and one of my favourites: Horrible Histories: Rotten Rulers. I can't wait for the next one to come out!
I would recommend this book to both history lovers and non-history lovers, since it makes history sound exciting instead of boring. This book tells you facts that your teachers might not tell you (plus a lot of ways to kidnap teachers). Personally, I think this book is called Horrible Histories because it tells you all the gory details of history.
