Truth or Busted's History title explores popular myths and legends about world history in a light and humorous way that kids will find unputdownable. Such statements as 'George Washington had wooden teeth' or 'Thomas Crapper invented the flushing toilet' are examined as well as where the ideas came, whether they have any basis in truth, or whether they can be consigned to folklore. Each statement is given a TRUTH or BUSTED evaluation.

Here's what you say about us...

Kay Barnham was born in Barrow-in-Furness, grew up in Carlisle, went to college in Brighton, and lived in Hove for a while, before sailing for Kinsale, Co Cork, popping back to Hove and then moving to the New Forest with her husband and daughter. And never at any point has she lived more than ten miles from the sea. She began working in children's publishing in 1992. She was an editor first of all, working on illustrated non-fiction and learning fun facts like how long it would take to walk to the moon - nine years- and how to spell palaeontology. Next, she commissioned fiction titles, editing picture books, storybooks and novels. And then she
got the chance to write her own books, which she thinks is quite the best job ever. Except possibly being a chocolatier. She writes non-fiction as Kay Barnham. Her specialist subjects include ice-skating, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, lightning, fairies, Roald Dahl, Sir Isaac Newton, Christmas, dolphins, Florence Nightingale and very bad cracker jokes. And chocolate.She also writes fiction as Kay Woodward, including the Skate School series for Usborne and the novels Jane Airhead and Wuthering Hearts for Andersen Press. Altogether, she's written about a hundred books. Her favourite colour is navy blue. Her favourite chocolate is 85% cocoa solids.
