Roman Aromas Reviews


"Kids who turn up their noses at traditional history texts might like the approach taken in Smelly Old History, a series of scratch-and-sniff volumes by Mary Dobson that chronicles the more pungent aspects of centuries past.... Take a whiff of raw sewage seeping through the streets, a crowded public
bath, and Henry VIII's smelly feet, among other things."--Publishers Weekly
"[Dobson's] Smelly Old History series of books...are a striking reply to all who think history books are too sanitized.... Squeamish adults may cavil at this approach, but a 'way cool' response is more likely from readers ages 10 and up.... What's certain is that Dobson's idea will make history more
approachable and lively than the usual dry and unsmelly textbooks at school."--The Denver Post
"High school woulda been a breeze with this stuff!"--The New York Observer
"All of this is actually serious stuff and aimed at adding another dimension to the teaching of history."--The Chicago Tribune
"Without these books, how would children learn that 16th-century women pressed peeled apples to their sweaty armpits, then passed the gifts onto their lovers. Or that Romans washed their linens in urine.... Will introduce kids 10 and older to social transformation."--The Washington Post
