Product Description

About the Author

In 1996 Terry was the best-selling British children's author with 5 of his books in the top ten best-sellers of the year (Waterstones Book Shop tables). In August 1997 he was still leading the way with thirteen titles in the top forty. (Bookseller listings). In 1999, The Daily Telegraph recorded that he outsold Enid Blyton by four to one and a Libraries survey made him the most-borrowed author of non-fiction in Britain - adult and children's books. Terry currently holds 8 out of the 10 slots for 'Most Borrowed Children's Non-Fiction' authors in the Public Lending Rights annual survey covering July 1998-June 1999. In November 1999 Books for Keeps magazine readers voted him "The outstanding children's non-fiction author of the 20th Century". In 2004 he continues to live up to this title with ever-increasing sales of the series. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

HASH(0x9bd9c270) out of 5 stars good little book Oct. 6 2009
By R. Mayeaux - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this book has some interesting stories, but unless you have background historical knowledge of the city, it might be a little hard to piece together. I had just returned from a trip to Edinburgh and the Highlands, so I found that helpful in understanding the situations. Great book forgetting young people interested in history

HASH(0x9c031780) out of 5 stars Great Books! May 9 2007

We first found the "Horrible Histories" series while traveling in Scotland - they are great books! Both of my boys love reading them...they are the right amount of history with pictures and drawings for interest.
HASH(0xa01c4950) out of 5 stars Not really a guide book July 26 2014
By William Matthew Robertson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Includes plenty of Edinburgh's more grisly history, but wouldn't recommend it as a guide book. I was hoping that the book would be a more entertaining version of the regular guide books (it does say "Gruesome Guides" on the front), but it's more concerned with telling very specific stories from Edinburgh's history without much historical context or interconnectedness between the stories.
HASH(0xa01c4860) out of 5 stars Great Gruesome Guide--Loved the Book! Jan. 23 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this gruesome guide, Terry Deary will take you to Edinburgh, a city that has a history thick with violence, vikings, blood, guts, and gore. Presented in a funny format for kids to understand, this book will show the seedy side of Edinburgh that most tourists don't see. Definitely recommend it.

Bought these books for my grandson in anticipation of our trip to Britain. His mom and I both read them and found them very entertaining while learning local history! History should have been this much fun when we were in school!
