Product description

Gobble up a frenzy of frightful French facts in this hilarious history book! This is the history of France as only Terry Deary can tell it, with gory bits, butcherings and beheadings galore. Not to mention a cruel cast of curious kings, quirky queens and evil emperors! Find out which king thought he was made of glass, why French bread was once made from broken tiles and bricks, and which queen used a budgie as her burglar alarm. Foul famines, terrible Terrors, heinous highwaymen and gruesome guillotines – history has never been so horrible!
