    Fascinating. Disgusting. Keep your mobile device close because you?ll be google-ing yourself down a rabbit hole for sure! ...

    Filled with twisted humor and all sorts of facts about body parts, this book was a quick and entertaining story. While I read it in one sitting, I can easily see that it would be possible to pick this book up and read a page or two at a time without confusion. The book is quite episodi...

    A fun, informative read full of fascinating historical anecdotes and gross tidbits. I wish it were a tad shorter but I'm guessing this will be a hit with my elementary crowd. ...

    If you like historical trivia of the icky and macabre sort, you will enjoy this book very much. I am please to know that Galileo's severed middle figure salutes the heavens to this day. ...

    Beccia, Carlyn They Lost Their Heads! 165 pages. NON-FICTION. Bloomsbury Publishing, 2018. $19. Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: PG; Violence PG. After you read this book, you will either be the most popular or least popular guest at a party, depending on how many facts from ...

    In "They Lost Their Heads," Carlyn Beccia serves up a heaping helping of stomach-churning accounts of the severed body parts of famous (or not so famous) folks. The genius of this book is how the author uses the "gross factor" to entice readers (target audience, grades 5-8) to learn an...

    A book for the not-so-faint-of-heart but a definite book for those who look for horror or humor or mystery when it comes to death or body parts. Loved the mystery stories behind Lincoln's body being moved 17 times or the mystery of did John Wilkes Booth really die in that fire. I skipp...

    #kidlitexchange #partner Thank to @kidlitexhange for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions, as always, are my own. Ghoulish humor, clever writing, and fun illustrations add up to a great historical facts book! They Lost Their Heads is all about history?...

    Definitely a morbid book written in good humor. Many interesting stories. I most enjoyed the DNA testing that was conducted on a number of people. Middle schoolers will enjoy the book. I received the book as a Goodreads Giveaway and I thank the author and publisher for the opportunity ...

    This book had interesting "facts" about dead bodies. Not always a reliable read, the author says "I can't have a little thing like dubious sources spoiling his fun" when she discusses parts of his book may not be entirely correct. I do like the fact that she encourages her readers to d...

    Interesting, gruesome, and hilarious! My favorite is how the author often warns the reader not to eat while reading the next part--and then goes on to compare severed body parts or insides to food. Don't forget the footnotes! ...

    Interesting read. Definitely geared towards middle-schoolers, probably boys. It was an easy read for an adult. It explains terms clearly. It injects humour into the life and death of many famous people. It does not get too gory. I learned a few things. I won this book in a Goodreads...

    Pure Perfection! Offbeat, Oddball, and Unusual stories about famous body parts from all over the world.. cool illustrations, great content, and casual yet informative writing. Loved it! ...

    This is a macabre collection of anecdotes about what happened to body parts of famous people. ...

    Where are various body parts of famous people? ...

    Strange nonfic that tracks the whereabouts of infamous detached appendages. Conversational style, a bit gruesome, but undeniably interesting. ...

    Fascinating. Disgusting. Keep your mobile device close because you?ll be google-ing yourself down a rabbit hole for sure! ...

    Filled with twisted humor and all sorts of facts about body parts, this book was a quick and entertaining story. While I read it in one sitting, I can easily see that it would be possible to pick this book up and read a page or two at a time without confusion. The book is quite episodi...

    A fun, informative read full of fascinating historical anecdotes and gross tidbits. I wish it were a tad shorter but I'm guessing this will be a hit with my elementary crowd. ...

    If you like historical trivia of the icky and macabre sort, you will enjoy this book very much. I am please to know that Galileo's severed middle figure salutes the heavens to this day. ...

    Beccia, Carlyn They Lost Their Heads! 165 pages. NON-FICTION. Bloomsbury Publishing, 2018. $19. Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: PG; Violence PG. After you read this book, you will either be the most popular or least popular guest at a party, depending on how many facts from ...

    In "They Lost Their Heads," Carlyn Beccia serves up a heaping helping of stomach-churning accounts of the severed body parts of famous (or not so famous) folks. The genius of this book is how the author uses the "gross factor" to entice readers (target audience, grades 5-8) to learn an...

    A book for the not-so-faint-of-heart but a definite book for those who look for horror or humor or mystery when it comes to death or body parts. Loved the mystery stories behind Lincoln's body being moved 17 times or the mystery of did John Wilkes Booth really die in that fire. I skipp...

    #kidlitexchange #partner Thank to @kidlitexhange for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions, as always, are my own. Ghoulish humor, clever writing, and fun illustrations add up to a great historical facts book! They Lost Their Heads is all about history?...

    Definitely a morbid book written in good humor. Many interesting stories. I most enjoyed the DNA testing that was conducted on a number of people. Middle schoolers will enjoy the book. I received the book as a Goodreads Giveaway and I thank the author and publisher for the opportunity ...

    This book had interesting "facts" about dead bodies. Not always a reliable read, the author says "I can't have a little thing like dubious sources spoiling his fun" when she discusses parts of his book may not be entirely correct. I do like the fact that she encourages her readers to d...

    Interesting, gruesome, and hilarious! My favorite is how the author often warns the reader not to eat while reading the next part--and then goes on to compare severed body parts or insides to food. Don't forget the footnotes! ...

    Interesting read. Definitely geared towards middle-schoolers, probably boys. It was an easy read for an adult. It explains terms clearly. It injects humour into the life and death of many famous people. It does not get too gory. I learned a few things. I won this book in a Goodreads...

    Pure Perfection! Offbeat, Oddball, and Unusual stories about famous body parts from all over the world.. cool illustrations, great content, and casual yet informative writing. Loved it! ...

    This is a macabre collection of anecdotes about what happened to body parts of famous people. ...

    Where are various body parts of famous people? ...

    Strange nonfic that tracks the whereabouts of infamous detached appendages. Conversational style, a bit gruesome, but undeniably interesting. ...

    Fascinating. Disgusting. Keep your mobile device close because you?ll be google-ing yourself down a rabbit hole for sure! ...

    Filled with twisted humor and all sorts of facts about body parts, this book was a quick and entertaining story. While I read it in one sitting, I can easily see that it would be possible to pick this book up and read a page or two at a time without confusion. The book is quite episodi...

    A fun, informative read full of fascinating historical anecdotes and gross tidbits. I wish it were a tad shorter but I'm guessing this will be a hit with my elementary crowd. ...

    In "They Lost Their Heads," Carlyn Beccia serves up a heaping helping of stomach-churning accounts of the severed body parts of famous (or not so famous) folks. The genius of this book is how the author uses the "gross factor" to entice readers (target audience, grades 5-8) to learn an...

    A book for the not-so-faint-of-heart but a definite book for those who look for horror or humor or mystery when it comes to death or body parts. Loved the mystery stories behind Lincoln's body being moved 17 times or the mystery of did John Wilkes Booth really die in that fire. I skipp...

    #kidlitexchange #partner Thank to @kidlitexhange for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions, as always, are my own. Ghoulish humor, clever writing, and fun illustrations add up to a great historical facts book! They Lost Their Heads is all about history?...

    Definitely a morbid book written in good humor. Many interesting stories. I most enjoyed the DNA testing that was conducted on a number of people. Middle schoolers will enjoy the book. I received the book as a Goodreads Giveaway and I thank the author and publisher for the opportunity ...

    This book had interesting "facts" about dead bodies. Not always a reliable read, the author says "I can't have a little thing like dubious sources spoiling his fun" when she discusses parts of his book may not be entirely correct. I do like the fact that she encourages her readers to d...

    Interesting, gruesome, and hilarious! My favorite is how the author often warns the reader not to eat while reading the next part--and then goes on to compare severed body parts or insides to food. Don't forget the footnotes! ...

    Interesting read. Definitely geared towards middle-schoolers, probably boys. It was an easy read for an adult. It explains terms clearly. It injects humour into the life and death of many famous people. It does not get too gory. I learned a few things. I won this book in a Goodreads...

    Pure Perfection! Offbeat, Oddball, and Unusual stories about famous body parts from all over the world.. cool illustrations, great content, and casual yet informative writing. Loved it! ...

    This is a macabre collection of anecdotes about what happened to body parts of famous people. ...

    Where are various body parts of famous people? ...

    Strange nonfic that tracks the whereabouts of infamous detached appendages. Conversational style, a bit gruesome, but undeniably interesting. ...
