This seires of books are the best history books I've ever read. I am 12 years old and I still use these books to suprise my teachers(Did you know pyramids contained toilets). I read these books over and over again. These books are the best you can buy for all ages, American or English.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jolly fun!!!! Jan. 26 2002
By Yumuri
I must say that my kid is sort of an expert on the medieval period and enjoys anything also about the Vikings. This one even got his sister hooked and she is no history lover. The descriptions are fun and the tidbits are wild...your child will enjoy it!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely good book Dec 7 2001
I am a big fan of this series and own tons of them. I am a history buff and also love comics and this book has both. If you are looking for a book that is easy to read but is also very fun to read, buy a horrible history. Terry Deary makes a bunch of facts about vikings into a very fun book. The comics are really funny and have great bits of puns and sarcasm. These books are designed to make history fun for people who don't like history. If I hadn't loved history before I picked up one of these books, I sure would love it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously funny June 9 2000
By Kali
I got this book for my nephew, as I wanted him to appreciate history from a fun point of view. "The Vicious Vikings" was informative, well written and a laugh-a-minute. Okay, so the age of the Vikings wasn't really funny, but Terry Deary has a great way of making the reader chuckle despite themselves. History can be horrible but it also can be VERY funny. How can you not laugh when the first words you see are "the Vikings lived in Scandinavia - that's the posh word for Sweden, Denmark and Norway." Also there are many cartoons to make history come alive in a way that children can relate too. The Horrible Histories series is wonderfully funny whilst at the same time being a great learning aid for children of all ages.
