Product description

The gorgeous Georgians may have loved preening in mirrors and prancing about in powdered wigs and pantaloons, but trust us – they were really rotten underneath! From lords and ladies’ sneaky schemes for hiding their personal hygiene problems to the horrible hardships suffered by the poor, find out the REAL story. It’s got horrible highwaymen, raging revolutions, plundering pirates, and guys wearing wigs and make-up. Plus the schoolchildren who went to war with their teachers! It’s better than Hollywood – and much more horrible!

    Terry Deary has made a brilliant, educational set of books! They teach you all about how the people of the past live! I would recommend an age range of 8-12 for this book

    The gorgeous Georgians is another horrible history book. Like all the others it is written in a funny and interesting way rather than just facts. The horrible history series has become very popular with the TV series and all though the TV is good, i would recommend you read the book as well as you can discover even more facts ! I would recommend this book for 9+
