Horrible Histories Books

Friday, 9 January 2015


Horrible Histories are books written by Terry Deary and illustrated by Martin Brown. They were first published in 1993 and have been a huge hit. Children love them because of their gory content and wicked facts that make history interesting.
There are many horrible histories books for you to choose from in the library. There is also a great web site, www.hhmag.co.uk, for you to investigate that has loads of information, fun stuff and games to play.
As a result of the success and popularity of the books a BAFTA award-winning CBBC show has been made as well as a theatre stage show.
