That said, this particular "Horrible History" loses one star for being obviously biased against the Republic of Ireland, and another because this bias can be so damaging to kids. The tensions in Northern Ireland are not at an end, and presenting a view of the area that clearly comes out on one side of the conflict is truly irresponsible.
Adults will be able to recognize this bias and take it with a grain of salt, but if you are planning to give this book to a kid or use it in a classroom, make sure you let them know that this is a complicated conflict, and that history is written by the winners.
