Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Conceptually modeled after Scholastic's You Wouldn't Want To . . . series (and even illustrated by those books' regular artist, Antram), the Top 10 Worst series baits the reluctant-historian hook with plenty of terrible (read: awesome) tidbits and splashy cartoon images. Among the irresistible facts kids will want to breathlessly share from Ruthless Warriors are the way Japanese warrior Yoshitsune's head was pickled in sake for his enemy and how number-one baddie Genghis Khan's armies slaughtered more than 40 million people. Kids with longer attention spans and researchers looking for report material will find their tastes merely slaked by the historical substance, but browsers will have a blast with these irreverent, quotable compendiums of calamity.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist"
