Over the course of history men and women have lived and died. In fact, getting sick and dying can be a big, ugly mess-especially before the modern medical care that we all enjoy today. How They Croaked relays all the gory details of how nineteen world figures gave up the ghost.
This was a most interesting and enjoyable book to read, and I am not one to read nonfiction, for the most part. It held my interest and will hold the interest of probably most kids. It was factual and informational and just gory enough for those wanting gore. The entries were short, usually one or two pages, with larger print, which appeals to a lot of kids. The accompanying facts were also very interesting to read. I will be recommending this one.
