Probably the first book about the Aztec Age that involves wedgies and skateboards, this is a must read for kids with a passion for horrible history!

Part of Nosy Crow’s list of publishing in collaboration with the British Museum and developed in consultation with one of the world’s leading experts on the Aztecs.

A kid’s life in the Aztec Age might sound like fun, what with all that brilliant sunny weather and exciting festivals, but actually life for kids could be pretty hard. In this hilarious book, written by award-winning author Chae Strathie, children will learn just how tough life really was, from being jabbed by cactus spikes to snacking on maggots… and even wearing jaguar skins!

Brought to life with rich, humorous illustrations by super-talented Marisa Morea. Other titles in the series include: Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece, Prehistoric Times.

Dimensions24 × 1.3 × 32.3 cm
