Couldn't be happier with this gift.
on 8 December 2012
I bought this gift for a relative, who is very fond of 'horrible histories'. A frequent watcher of the show on CBBC, and enthusiastic for all it's fun and sometimes gory facts. I thought with no hesitation that this Christmas I would buy her a 'horrible histories' themed gift. I bought this book to accompany the DVD of series one- which makes a lovely little Christmas present. Firstly the book is full of it's engaging and insightful information; which I fount myself laughing at and developing a thirst to read on( who could ask for a better book? ). I originally thought it would be a book which states many facts and information, but it's that and more. It has quizzes, jokes, fun facts and much more. With it's beautifully drawn illustrations, it certainly engages it's reader. The delivery was fast, and quick which is perfect and much appreciated at such an awkward time at Christmas. I couldn't rate this purchase any lower, everything I was delighted with and i'm sure my relative will love it just the same. I would definitely recommend purchasing this book if you have a person who is fond of history, adults and children alike.
