Totally Chaotic History: Ancient Egypt Gets Unruly! Reviews

Jenner makes a popular non-fiction topic feel fresh, condensing thousands of years of history into 156 pages of captivating text. * The Bookseller *
This book is presented in a fun and informative way for kids to learn from and enjoy. It is written in an easy way to read and follow. It is funny and also has some gross moments for the kids to read about. The illustrations add another level to this book, they are well drawn and appealing to children. * NetGalley Reviewer *
I have so far found it hard to find history books that are suitable for UKS 2 students who are not ready for full-on history books quite yet. This one is just perfect for them. There is enough information packed into this not-too-lengthy-or-wordy book to inspire further interest in the topic. It is written with lots of humour to keep children engrossed. A perfect history book for KS 2 students. * NetGalley Reviewer *
A fun and educational romp from pre-dynastic Egypt to Roman times. It has Jenner's trademark wit all the way through so children take in a huge amount of knowledge while thinking they've just spent the last half hour laughing at jokes about bodily functions. The fun illustrations add to the accessibility of the book. Highly recommended. * NetGalley Reviewer *
Greg’s style is informal, and chatty which is great for a young readership… a great way to introduce historical discussion and debates to a young reader and a good jumping off point to explore the history further. It is very much like what Greg does on his ‘You’re dead to me’ podcast but aimed at a young audience. * NetGalley Reviewer *
