31. The Groovy Greeks
Illustrated by Martin Brown
Rated 4.5 Stars
Format: Small Paperback book, 136 pages
I discovered these books in a National Trust bookstore somewhere in England back when I used to travel over there every couple of years or so. I loved the snarky way they were written and such an easy way to learn about history in a short, succinct, and interesting way. If you're into snark that is. :)
"The Groovy Greeks" is full of fab facts about the hip and happening Greeks - who hung out all over 2000 years ago. This book tells you who had the world's first flushing toilet and why dedicated doctors tasted their patients' ear wax.
