Questo libro non trascura nessun atroce fatto a proposito di Montezuma, Cuauhtemoc e altra gente con nomi impronunciabili, gente per cui il massimo del divertimento era tenere in mano un cuore umano ancora caldo e palpitante. Vi piacerebbe sapere perché gli aztechi mangiavano rospi, cactus, lucertole, formiche, cani e schiuma di lago? Quando verrà la fine del mondo? Come si fa a giocare a palla in un modo veramente violento? Leggerete di sacrifici umani, di anestesie a base di cenere di iguana e di come sposarvi con una originale cerimonia azteca. Scoprirete tutto quello che c'è da sapere su potenti sacerdoti, bizzarri guerrieri e astuti conquistadores, che si comportano in modo ancora più atroce degli aztechi. Età di lettura: da 10 anni.

(For each page of a regular history book I should imagine the lives of Leggi tutto
Yet another great book with easy to remember history. I didn't love this as much as the Celts one, but that might be because I knew lots of what was mentioned, after all those school years reviewing Mexico's history over and over. Nevertheless, there were still new bits of information, the gruesome
Why, according to the Aztecs, was the world going to end on December 22, 2012?

According to the opening section of Horrible Histories: Angry Aztecs, this book will teach a little bit of history and a lot about people, but the most important thing is that it will teach children everywhere how to drive their teachers stark, raving mad by repeatedly asking the most dreaded questi Leggi tutto
