Horrible Histories

by ,
  • (25 reviews)

    Think history is boring? Think again. It is disgusting, bloodthirsty, gory, silly and downright nasty and the Horrible Histories books will prove it. This series of non-fiction books teaches history “with the nasty bits left in”. No fact is too foul, no battle too vicious and no blunder too ludicrous for these books and that is exactly why children love them. And they’re not the only ones: teachers, parents and librarians are fans too and as a result they have expanded to a hugely successful, BAFTA award-winning TV series on CBBC not to mention to games, stage shows, activity books and more.
     
    The author, Terry Deary, has written more than 60 Horrible History books since 1993 and describes the series as “a new genre” – fact books with jokes. The funny and gruesome facts mean children learn about history without even realising it. The mix of comic strips, illustrations, quizzes, recipes and more make them easy to dip in and out of which is probably why they are highly recommended for usually reluctant readers.
     
    Children enjoy Horrible Histories from aged 7 upwards, although younger readers will need a strong stomach as none of the grisly details are spared. The books do link back to topics covered in school in Key Stages 2 and 3, but they will delight any child (or adult) with a silly sense of humour and a love of the revolting and bloodthirsty.
     
    With so many books, and practically every period in history covered, it can be hard to figure out where to start, so check out our list of the full series below. We love the classics Terrifying Tudors or Vile Victorians or spark an interest in ancient history with Groovy Greeks or Angry Aztecs. Horrible Histories can bring holidays and days out to life and are guaranteed to keep giggling kids glued to their book.
