Thought this Horrible Histories set would be fantastic for children in KS2 going onto KS3.

It is a must have literature for everyone as it makes 'boring old History' in to a fun, exciting and engaging way to learn about world history, drawing out the 'fun' aspects (with a particular focus on the gorey parts, which in all honesty is appealing to most people).

Even if you are not a fan of history, these books will plant seed of new found enthusiasm in you!

And the best thing about this is, the whole

Die Bloodcurdling Box of Books enthält 20 Ausgaben Horrible Histories. Von den Steinzeitmenschen, Ägypter, Römern, Griechen, Azteken und Inkas hin zu der Geschichte Großbritanniens: Kelten, Wikinger, Saxen, Normannen, die Königshäuser der Stuards und Tudors, sowie der erste und zweite Weltkrieg sind vorhanden.
Die Bücher sind eigentlich an Kinder gerichtet, und daher alle angenehme ca. 160 Seiten lang. Für Kinder eine überschaubare Dicke, für interessierte Erwachsene gut an einem Tag zu lesen.

These are a great set of books that can read by anyone, Young and old. I got these bought for me but and have found my Nieces and Nephews reading them many times, Even my Mum and Dad has read bits of them. They go from the Stone Age right through to the Blitzed Brits and are a bargain at around £20. There plenty of pictures and facts that are easy to understand and children and adults alike will learn lots of fact from them.

This "box of books" was really good, and do NOT get me wrong, Terry Deary is an amazing author and I write to him regularly.

It's a bit young - but neither is it meant to be used for essays. Therefore my 3/5. It gets boring. But it helped me remember all of my history facts.

It's funny and in Grade 4, all of my friends loved it.
