Groovy Greeks presents 'orrible olympics

Deary, Terry, author; Brown, Martin, 1959- illustrator

Apparently the ancient Greeks were a rather groovy bunch. The boys didn't start school until they were seven, and girls didn't have to go at all. But it wasn't always so jolly. Readers can discover who had the world's first flushing toilet and why dedicated doctors tasted their patients' ear wax!
