Horrible Histories: Egypt - A High-Speed History

Mad mummies, cruel curses and ten comic-strip tales by the kings of yuck. Hurray! We all know the Horrible crew are super-funny. But now they’ve gone super-speedy. What does that mean? Fast, furious, full-on fun! Prepare to hold on tight. Hurtle off to the long-ago Nile in ten comic-strip stories. But don’t pack your sunnies: this is no holiday. Perilous pyramids. Moaning mummies. Killer curses. Foul pharaohs. Can you move fast enough to see them all – and still escape them all? Better be quick!
