5.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Histories Annual 2014
This is based on the popular Horrible Histories series by Terry Deary and is packed full of grusome, and fun, historical facts. There is an 'Awful Egyptian Grisly Gallery', a high speed historical comic strip about Pompeii, details of Roman's and their 'Foul Feasting', how to dress like a Terrible Tudor, jokes, quizzes, art pages and much more. This is aimed at children...

3.0 out of 5 stars idea's nice
Quick money-maker, each page has one enormous easy puzzle or game.. not impressed at all.. shame, because it could've been like the comic annuals we used to have back in the 50s/60s, which kept kids quiet for days on end.. this would take ten minutes from start to finish

This review is from: Annual 2014 (Horrible Histories) (Hardcover)
This is based on the popular Horrible Histories series by Terry Deary and is packed full of grusome, and fun, historical facts. There is an 'Awful Egyptian Grisly Gallery', a high speed historical comic strip about Pompeii, details of Roman's and their 'Foul Feasting', how to dress like a Terrible Tudor, jokes, quizzes, art pages and much more. This is aimed at children of approx 7+. Personally I have bought it as a stocking filler for my nine year old son, as he loves both the Horrible History books and the TV show. It has plenty to amuse and entertain and, as always with these brilliant books, they might learn something along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids (and older kids....like adults!), 6 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Annual 2014 (Horrible Histories) (Hardcover)
This is a great way to get children interested in history from, I would say, 7/8 years old. Great fun, with information and quizzes that child-adults (c'est moi) can enjoy having a go at too. An example is the pages where there is a scene from a particular period in history, and you are asked to say which of the objects in the picture would have been there at the time and which wouldn't - you will be surprised at some of the answers! Great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars GRUESOME MAYBE...BUT INTERESTING FACTS., 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Annual 2014 (Horrible Histories) (Hardcover)
The grandchild who received this book was very pleased with it.
I looked through it first and was actually quite fascinated by some of the information.
It might aim to be gruesome,but it also imparts a lot of facts in a way which children enjoy.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Annual 2014 (Horrible Histories) (Hardcover)
Didn't even realise horrible histories had made an annual until seeing it on amazon. Full of foul facts,gruesome games and putrid pictures. Just brilliant, an excellent stocking filler for horrible history fans. Once again cheapest price around
