About this title

Synopsis:

Meet the dudes who made history happen. With quirky, inspired artwork, History Dudes' look at the past is both irreverent and informative. Each book takes the reader on a journey through a key event, theme, or period in world history, with explanatory reference spreads, comic strips, and interviews with historical dudes along the way. AUTHOR BIO: Rich Cando started drawing the nationally syndicated comic strip Chaos while a student at UCLA. His Star Dudes series, a spoof of Star Wars, has earned him fans worldwide and has been shown in museums around the world.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4 Up?These two entries in a new series cover the daily lives, religions, societies, governments, and cultures of the ancient Egyptians and the Vikings. Brief biographies of notables such as Rameses the Great (Egyptians) and Leif Erikson (Vikings) are included, along with made-up "dudes" like Bjorn the Berserk (included to explain the infamous Viking warriors known as berserkers). Illustrated by a comic strip/animation artist, both books use a cartoon format. The lively, often irreverent texts, full of puns and slang, will engage young readers, though the small font used in many places makes them hard to read. Both volumes include explanations of their respective pantheons and information about writing systems-hieroglyphics in Egyptians and runes in Vikings. Unfortunately, there is no bibliography. Still, Cando's expressive, brightly colored comic characters are sure to entice many a dude to pick these books up-don't expect them to stay on the shelves.?Robin L.
