About This Book
This book from the "You Wouldn't Want To..." series explores the harsh realities of emigrating from Ireland to America during the Irish potato famine.
This delightful series brings something unusual to the study of history: humor. "You Wouldn't Want to..." revels in the darker side of life in ancient times. The reader is on center stage as he or she gets a tour through life as a slave, warrior, explorer — even a mummy! Hilarious illustrations, captions, and sidebars leave no doubt that you simply wouldn't want to be there.
Perfect resource for reluctant readers with:
• humor and history tied to curriculum
• entertaining sidebars to pique reader's curiosity
• comprehensive glossary to support content
• index to make navigating subject matter easier
