More About the Author

Terry was born in Sunderland, England, in 1946 and now lives in County Durham, in the North-east of England.

Terry's father (Billy) was a butcher in Hendon, Sunderland, and his mother (Freda) was the manageress of a clothing shop. He worked many years in his father's butcher shop as a boy. It was better than school where he was beaten, bullied and abused by his loathsome teachers.

Terry began his career as a professional actor in 1972 when he joined Theatre Powys in Mid-Wales. He has also worked as a theatre-director, museum manager, drama teacher, television presenter. He first acted on television in 1973 and in 2010 he made his debut in movies with a small part in a British film "Risen"

As an actor with Theatre Powys Terry began writing scripts for some of the shows. One of the most successful was a children's show called "The Custard Kid". The "Custard Kid" tour ended but Terry didn't want to lose the exciting tale so he turned it into a children's novel. That first novel was published by A & C Black who are still publishing his books 35 years later.

In 35 years as an author his writing has included fiction and popular non-fiction. He also writes TV, theatre, radio, audio and new media scripts.

In 2009 CBBC Television launched a major television series of his Horrible Histories which has gone on to win several Children's BAFTA awards. In February 2011 the TV series won a British Comedy Award for best sketch show - the first children's show ever to win a Comedy Award. The same month Terry Deary became the 10th most-borrowed author in British libraries.

In 2010 there was a computer game adaptation for Nintendo Wii, DS and PC. A series of theatre plays, 'Horrible Histories', have been created in collaboration with Birmingham Stage Company touring throughout 2006 - 2012.

His next projects are with film companies to animate a 28-part worldwide television series "Terry Deary's True Time Tales" as well as adapting his "The Fire Thief" trilogy of fiction for movies. In 2011 Terry will scriupt a movie about football called 90 Minutes.

His charity work includes being patron of Single Homeless Action Initiative in Derwentside (SHAID), Grace House Children's Hospice appeal and Integrating Children is a small charity based in North Durham providing children with disabilities the chance to take part in leisure activities and enjoy the same opportunities as the non-disabled .

Terry was awarded a degree as Doctor of Education at Sunderland University in 2000 and is an ambassador for his home city of Sunderland. In 2011 he won the Sheffield Childrten's Book award for his novel "Put out the light" - a book that was also nominated for the prestigious Carnegie Medal in 2012.

Terry has been married to Jenny since 1975 and their daughter Sara is a talented event rider who competes at international level. See her Shivers Event Team website. In June 2011 Sara had twins, Harry and Jessica, Terry and Jenny's first grand-children.

In his spare time Terry is a road runner with Derwentside Athletic Club and takes part in races from 3 miles up to the Great North Run 13.1 miles.

Format: Paperback
This book is excellent for any ages but i think, my self being a kid this book is for 10-13 year olds mostly. Parents should buy this and other Horrible History books if they cant get their kids to read other boring hisdory facts. This book has lots of information on vikings and how they lived. Who and how and when and what they conquered in a very funny way. Comic strips here and there make it funny and fun to read. There are also quizes and trick questions for your teachers about vikings, so if your teacher is a show-off then ask them some things out of here. You'll cathc them of guard! I personally like Horrible history books more than Horrible Science and Geography books because here there is like a storyline. This book is one of the best out of the Horrible History books, but I havent read all of them (and am looking forward to it). That is about it. My mum and Dad read this book and they also loved it, so that proves that it is for all ages. Terry Deary has really gone to town with this one! If your buying your first book out of this series then get this one!

I gave this book 4 stars because it was very funny but it didn't make me laugh as much as I would like to.
It was very gross. I like a bit of gross now and then that's why I gave it one of it`s stars for. I would recommend this book to a person who likes gross and likes having a book that makes them laugh.

A great book for a young history buff. I read it with my granddaughter on our way to, and back from, the fabulous Viking Exhibition in Edinburgh and she enjoyed it.

I found this for my son as we have been reading about Vikings. He is 8 and found it very entertaining. He also learnt a thing or two! Just the right length. It encouraged him to read more on the subject so it's got the thumbs up from me. Arrived quickly.

As big fans of Horrible Histories, both my pre teen daughters love this CD. I always find it being played on their CD players and often have to switch it off when I check on them at bedtime

If you’ve read my other Horrible Histories reviews, you’ve probably noticed a recurring theme – I always say that the books are good, but not as good as The Vicious Vikings. Well, The Vicious Vikings is finally here, and let me let you in to a little secret – it’s awesome.

And the best part of it is, you don’t need to be a history geek to enjoy reading it – hell, you don’t even need to be a kid! The Vikings were a fascinating race, and Deary tells their story with obvious passion – it’s a passion that’s contagious, and Martin Brown‘s fantastic illustrations help to complete this children’s masterpiece.
