Ready for a history lesson with a terrifying, gruesome twist? Strap yourself in, because this time we’re heading back 2000 years to uncover the Horrible truth about the Roman Empire. This Rotten Romans book includes loads of fiendish facts about the best (or worst, depending how you look at it!) Roman leaders, namely Julius Caesar, Nero and Claudius. Attention is also given to their enemies, the Cut-Throat Celts and the Battling Britons, and there are even some disgusting secrets about the Romans’ way of life, like the fact that rich people had a designated room which they called “the Vomitorium”!
Best of all, you can personalise this Horrible Histories book with your child’s name on the cover and a message to them inside, making this funny and educational present just that extra bit special.
How to Personalise
Personalise your book with your child’s name, which will be printed on the cover and the title page. Then add a special message of up to 80 characters and two lines, which will also feature on the title page. There is also the option to present your book in a protective luxury gift box.
When entering your personalisation, please note that accents, emojis and other symbols can’t be used as our system doesn’t support these. Make sure to double check your spelling!

As my grandaughter loves horrible histories she is really enjoying the book
Customer service very polite and helpful, willing to solve the issue with a coupon for discounts which would not apply.
Solution was to offer me a refund for the correspondent discount, which I agreed.
Thank you, Rachel

Good quality products
The products and the service are excellent but the package used for posting is not good.
I ordered a book and it came with two corners damaged, it was replaced but the second book arrive with one corner damaged. I have managed to make the corner better. I suggest they put extra protection on the corners. I would order again as the products are good
