Corpse Talk: Season 2
Publisher: David Fickling Books
Adam Murphy is the host of a very unusual kind of talk-show, one where all the guests are dead! In the second of the two books in this series Adam has exhumed an incredible array of characters from Guy Fawkes and William Shakespeare to Pocahontas and Catherine the Great and all of them have a very interesting story to tell. Did you know that as a child Queen Victoria was imprisoned in Kensington Palace by her mother? Or that William the Conqueror's corpse exploded all over his mourners?
This book is overflowing with interesting facts, fascinating real-life characters and so much humour that readers will forget they are learning! Adam Murphy's comic-book style story telling brings the tales to life, and each picture is filled to the brim with detail. A funny, clever and informative read. All history should be taught this way!
