Mooching around the virtual bookshelves of The Book People, this morning, I came across a rather nice deal on the Horrible History of Britain and Ireland by Terry Deary - its full list price is £12.99, you can buy a copy from The Book People for just £4.99.
My youngest son is SUCH a fan of all things Horrible History - he has the books, he watches the TV programmes and the children's quiz show based upon Terry Deary's absolutely genius series of educational history books.
Just in case you've not come across his Horrible History books before, let me tell you about them quickly: in short, they are a series of books that reveal the gory and gruesome side of various times throughout history, from 'The Rotten Romans' to 'The Terrible Tudors', the 'Vile Victorians' right though to grim facts about living during the First and Second World Wars.
Terry Deary has, single handed, managed to capture the imaginations of children by telling them all the horrible bits of history and ignited their thirst for historical knowledge.
The Horrible History of Britain and Ireland book will furnish your child with all sorts of amazing, disgusting and horrible historical facts about the country they live in; it also comes with 'dreadful door poster' for your young historian to stick somewhere too.
Single item delivery usually costs an additional £1.95, but I have a free delivery code for you to use - simply enter OFFERSEP into the promotion code box in your basket and you won't have to pay a single penny more than £4.99 for your Horrible History of Britain and Ireland book.
Happy Horrible Histories; hurrah!
