History General Information
Truly Foul & Cheesy History Book
You are a young man from a noble family in Mexico. Little do you suspect that you are about to fall victim to one of the most powerful South American civilisations and become an Aztec sacrifice! The topics covered in this book include beliefs and attitudes of the Aztecs to life and death and the geography of the area in which the Aztecs lived. "You Wouldn't Want To Be" is a constantly-growing library of exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history. Humorous cartoon-style illustrations bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events.
