Controversy of title[edit]

According to an extract from Elizabeth Levy, "America's Horrible Histories" is now formally known as "America's Funny But True History" (hence the old series is obsolete), bringing some controversy over which books are officially part of which series and which books have which logos on top of them. She decided this after she wrote "Are We There Yet", most probably for copyright reasons related to the Horrible Histories series. Her next book, Cranky Colonials was the first book to have the new title.

Critical reception[edit]
