Product description


Praise for The Thrifty Guide to Ancient Greece

this history book [is] anything but dry --Booklist

Praise for the Thrifty Guides series:

These books are educational and entertaining as all get out!--BN.com Kids Blog

Stokes's practice as a screenwriter is evident; readers will feel like they're in a blockbuster film. A high interest video game-like exploration of the American Revolution.--School Library Journal

An entertaining introduction to America's War for Independence conveyed with enough kid-friendly humor that it may make those who dismiss history as a bore reconsider.--Kirkus Reviews

Easy to read, will engage reluctant readers of history, and spur discussions.--School Library Connection

A very funny tour of Rome's bloody and tumultuous past.--Publishers Weekly

An entertaining introduction to ancient Rome with kid-friendly humor that may make those convinced that history is boring reconsider.--Kirkus Reviews

A unique presentation that's written casually and feels more approachable than a litany of facts. Fans of the 'You Wouldn't Want to Be a...' series looking for something just a tad more sophisticated will find a lot to love.--School Library Journal
