    Ancient Greece is presented in the format of a travel guide for time traveling tourists. The tone throughout the book is light and jokey with fake Yelp reviews (including one on the Oracle of Delphi), helpful hints and even an insurance waiver if you decide to go to war with the Spartans. The entire book is written in present tense, which only adds to the fun. I giggled out loud reading the introduction (especially the Time Corp Limitation of Liability, which includes the detail that going back Ancient Greece is presented in the format of a travel guide for time traveling tourists.

I giggled out loud reading the introduction (especially the Time Corp Limitation of Liability, which includes the detail that going back in time to kidnap Euclid does not get you out of geometry homework). All told, this book is both fun and informative and is sure to be a hit with kids who are Rick Riordan fans or just love ancient history in general. No index means this book is best-suited for browsing. It will be difficult for students to use this for research projects without an index (the table of contents isn't very descriptive either). All the jokes also feel inappropriate at times when women and slaves are being treated so badly.

    Copy provided by the publisher Another in this series (Ancient Rome and Revolutionary War), which is lighthearted and fun. I appreciate that it covers a lot of social history and offers much information about how people lived. There is a lot of information here, from various famous people to food, clothing, and daily life. As a former Latin teacher with a minor in Ancient Greek, I found that I didn't like it as much because the lighthearted tone made me question whether or not the information was Copy provided by the publisher Another in this series (Ancient Rome and Revolutionary War), which is lighthearted and fun.

The organization of this could have been a bit more linear; it felt like it jumped from topic to topic. I will probably buy it, because students have enjoyed the other two books, but for some reason I personally didn't enjoy this as much.

    Oh my goodness! What a surprise! I have an ARC of this book courtesy of Follett. My focus is high school, but they sent this to me so I gave it a look. Could hardly put it down. I learned so much about Ancient Greece. It brought together what had formerly been bits and flashes, and it was so fun! Sure, some of the humor was corny, but I didn’t mind. Very well put together. I might actually buy other books in the series.

    I can't tell you how much I love this series! Very tongue in cheek, but the information is accurate, fast-paced, exciting and sometimes gross. I'm recommending these to every middle school kid who will listen. Great job Stokes and Bonet. Full my full review, visit http://kissthebook.blogspot.com CHECK IT OUT!

    It’s fun, it’s funny, and it’s great history! I loved this profile of ancient Greece, a new offering in Viking’s Thrifty Guide series for middle-grade kids. Stokes and illustrator Bonet did a terrific job of making history irresistible to young readers.

    Fun history book for kids and younger teens (and the young at heart). See my full review here: http://www.compassbookratings.com/rev...

    Not quite as funny as the first two, but still an excellent and entertaining way to introduce the history of Ancient Greece.

    This rollicking, truly one-of-a-kind guide book to ancient Greece aims to make history fun and absolutely succeeds! Laugh-out-loud funny, genuinely educational, and full of fascinating history, I enjoyed every clever moment of this book and look forward to reading more books in the series.
