How They Croaked: The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous

How They Croaked: The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous - Georgia Bragg, Kevin O'Malley This book was so much fun! It's simultaneously breezy and gross, and I think it will be embraced with glee by young teens. There's plenty of fabulously arcane information mixed in with the obligatory exploding corpses, blistering plasters, lead poisoning and leeches. Covers lots of famous deaders, from Cleopatra to Marie Curie, from Caesar to President Garfield. Recommended!
