As a child history was one of my favourite school subjects thus making Horrible Histories the perfect books for me.

Nowadays children have the television series yet I belong to the older group that had the books. Personally, I believe any child who has an interest in history should give these books a go. They’re truly gripping and so many topics are covered.

Honestly, Horrible Histories are well worth a read.

Another great entry to a great series.

One word: Amazing. This book to me was classic Horrible Histories. The others I've read over the past few weeks have been great, but no where near as good as this one.

I can't remember what the first 'Terrible Tudors' book covered but this one was made up of sections on each Tudor monarch. Deary included information about each monarch and how they were as a ruler, but also snuck other relevant information in such as Tudor pastimes and grizzly medicines.

The quizzes were very well thought out and w

I found this book to be rather good - even though it's a book aimed at a far younger audience, the great thing about the Horrible Histories series is that it focuses on cute (read; gory) anecdotes. These are the quirky things that really grab the attention of younger readers that you often don't find in the grand histories focusing on personalities and the great movements of history. Sometimes it's just refreshing to read about how during the Tudor period they cooked a cockatrice by sewing a chi ...more

The sequel of the Horrible History in Tudor time. After reading this, you'll know why Henry VIII loved chopping heads off, and the public's infatuation with attending public executions (it was one of the only few entertainments available then). And you'll understand why people actually died from eating breads, because most of the ingredients were made up of CHALK (and a bit of flour). Eeww...! Tudor die-hard fans should definitely read this.

This book was about Tudors. The tudors were vicious people such as Henry the 3rd. Henry the 3rd was incredibly violent. The tudors cared about the religion. The country's religion changed every time a new tudor becomes a new king. This made me interested. It got my attention and started to attract to me to the world of history. There were some creepy parts but those parts are the only parts I hate. Other wise, it is pretty good.

Since the Tudors ruled for so long, it's no wonder that there is enough material for two editions of this book. This one highlights Queen Elizabeth I. While I knew all the facts that were presented, it was entertaining to read some of the parts of everyday life, recipes, possible punishments for crimes, etc.

Horrible Histories is a series of illustrated books published in the UK by Scholastic. They are designed to get children interested in history by concentrating on the trivial, unusual, gory, or unpleasant. They are exceptionally well loved by my history loving children

Recommends it for: Everyone
It's a book about blood gore and history... what more could you want? I have read this something like 23 times because the horrible history books are one of those types of books that you can pick up and enjoy at any age.

Such gore, Much Tudor 11/10
