Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The author and publisher of the �History Dudes� series completely overdid this attempt at being cool. Every topic and almost every page includes repeated use of the words �dude� and �awesome.� There is mild, but still inappropriate profanity (�Now it�s time to get to work. Damn.�) The limited vocabulary legitimates crude, popular slang. The tiny font size coupled with the vocabulary would put the book on a young adult shelf, but the board book cover and coloring book-style illustrations would be unappealing to that age group. The information itself does cover a broad range of topics, including daily activities for workers and nobles, social life, myths and legends, and strategies for building pyramids or waging war. There is an index and an illustrated timeline. Reviewer: Karen Leggett
