Horrible Histories are brilliant books. They teach you a lot and make history fun. One of the best facts that I found out was that James I picked his nose and never washed his hands!
Horrible History books have been turned into a major CBBC TV show and some have even been turned into DS games.
Horrible Histories are brilliantly written by Terry Deary and Martin Browns illustrations make everything really funny.
There are over 50 Horrible History books to collect including Vile Victorians and Savage Stone age. I really like Horrible Histories and recommend the to 7-12 year olds.
I read them all the time.
