The wildly successful Horrible Histories books and TV shows – facts boosted by lots of jokes – are adored by children and adults alike. Writer Terry Deary thinks it's because his characters often subvert authority. Take the Barmy British Empire," he says. I'd basically concluded it was one of the worst things to happen to the planet. Deary has turned the page on Horrible Histories and turned his sights on a raft of other projects: a couple of new children's book series, an adult novel about football, and some adult non-fiction, including history.

My twin, 13 year old boys adore all of the Horrible History books. I wish there were more!
Cemav
My almost 11 year old son-LOVES this series! These are the books he asked for Xmas this year and hasn't put them down yet! Lots of great history details.

Kids loved them

All the points made in this book are accurate and I can only laugh at the 2 poor reviews given to this book by obviously outraged Brits who don't have any idea of how truly horrible their Empire was. On an absolute scale, the Empire did more damage to more people than the Nazis. It was infinitely more evil about time someone portrayed it correctly

All the books in this series are great! They present history in an interesting, humourous form. You can learn a lot about history and not even realize you're learning. If you're tired of dry, boring textbooks but still want to learn about history, these books are for you! (If you're British, this may not be the book for you, because even though the author is British, he doesn't hesitate to say the bad things about the British empire.)

I have never been so taken with a history book before. Hundreds of unknown, to me, facts about the "Barmy British" They were just as bad as the Nazi Germany. But of course the English had better press.

Big fan of the "Horrible Histories" series and love Martin as an illustrator; but sorry, this one is just junk.
