British Museum: So You Think You've Got It Bad? A Kid's Life in Ancient Greece Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Marisa Morea

Part of the So You Think You've Got It Bad? series

Paperback / softback


Part of Nosy Crow's list of publishing in collaboration with the British Museum and developed in consultation with one of the world's leading experts on ancient Greece. A kid's life in ancient Greece might sound like fun, what with all that brilliant sunny weather and watching the Olympic Games, but actually life for kids could be pretty hard.

In this hilarious book, written by award-winning author Chae Strathie, children will learn just how tough life really was, from living on a diet of blood soup whilst wearing nothing but a cloak, to having to learn a poem that was over 15,000 lines long!

Thanks, but no thanks, Homer!Probably the first book about ancient Greece to feature a race between a go-kart and a goose, this is a must read for kids with a passion for horrible history!Brought to life with rich, humorous illustrations by super-talented Marisa Morea. Other titles in the series include: Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Aztec Age, Prehistoric Times.
