I've written about these Horrible Histories books before; I keep seeing trailers on TV for a Dan Snow series on BBC Knowledge about the major cities in the world and how filthy they were 'way back when' which made me come and look for Horrible Histories again.
The 10 Horrible Histories books were on sale for £9.99 the first time I wrote about them too (maybe they're always £9.99 from The Book People!) and if you've not come across them before, you're in for a treat!
Essentially, Horrible Histories are historical accounts with the gross, gory, slimy, smelly and disgusting bits left IN - just the sort of thing that kids love and will have them absolutely engrossed, never again will history be boring.
The titles which make up this set of 10 Horrible Histories set are:
- Slimy Stuarts
- Awesome Egyptians
- Vile Victorians
- Rotten Romans
- Terrible Tudors
- Vicious Vikings
- Groovy Greeks
- Woeful Second World War
- Measly Middle Ages
- Frightful First World War
If you're looking for ideas and something different to put into party bags, rather than the usual plastic tat, then you could buy a set of these Horrible Histories books, split them up and put a book in each bag.
Single item delivery will cost you an additional £1.95, unless you find something else that takes your fancy and brings your order total to £25 or more.
Happy being grossed out by history!
