The ‘You Wouldn’t Want to Be…’ series of books are skillfully written and illustrated with just the right balance of fun and at times disgusting, horrible and gory historical facts. Aimed at 7-12 year old children, they’re wonderfully entertaining histories for readers of all ages, and are excellent books for even the most reluctant readers.

The ‘You Wouldn’t Want to Be…’ series has been published in 32 languages and has sold over 6 million copies. On our website, you can find free teachers’ education resources, classroom plays and free web books that can be viewed on devices including an iPhone 8, an iPad or a PC, along with eBooks and special easier-to-read editions using type designed for dyslexic readers.
