    " Fun historical gross-outs "

    " Another fun nonfiction book for adolescents. I think middle schoolers would love this. To me, knowing the actual history behind some of these tales, the author seems biased in her viewpoints, but nothing distracting. Again, the target audience is adolescents, and I think they would love this book. There's just enough gore and gross stuff to keep them interested, and just enough history to be good for them. "

    " I think, as a kid, I would have gobbled this book up. The adult in me wants more information about the lives of all the people included. Luckily for me, there is a section at the end with more information. "
