4.0 out of 5 stars Terry Deary – The Terrible Tudors | Reviews, 8 Mar. 2014
By 
Terry Deary is back again, giving you all of the grizzly, gruesome details that schoolteachers fail to mention. That said, you shouldn't be scared of giving this to a kid - it won't give them nightmares, but it will make them want to learn more, and that's all that really matters.

This time, Deary's work is illustrated by Neil Tonge rather than Martin Brown, but it still maintains the same feel and the same style that you'll be used to if you've read other books in the series. The Terrible Tudors might not be the best place to start, but you're still going to love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to history, 14 Feb. 2007
This book is, contrary to some views, a very good read. It is designed to make learning about the "Terrible" Tudors fun, and it achieves this with flying colours.

The book not only introduces the monarchs of the time, such as the infamous Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I, but also what conditions were like to live and work, what food there was available, and some Terrible Tudor customs!

Overall, a perfect book to read for children and teenagers alike, combining Terry Deary's perfect humour with facts which will stick with the reader for the rest of their lives!

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly Not Terrible!, 10 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Horrible Histories: Terrible Tudors (Kindle Edition)
This is a great book that engages the reader in history. I disagree with people who say it's rubbish because it's aimed at CHILDREN and CHILDREN won't buy boring things. So stop saying that it's tedious and boring and incorrect because it's not. The book is hilarious with good facts and certainly got me into history. All they taught me about was Henry VII but this book taught me about the poorer Tudors. Great book. And for people who say the drawings are rubbish and cheap, look at Diary of Wimpy Kid.

5.0 out of 5 stars a fabulous way to learn history, 13 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A most entertaining way to learn historical facts. My grandson loves it and I gave it to him in time for a homework project on Tudors. It has certainly made his homework more interesting to him and has encouraged him to write more detail in his work as previously, he has been reluctant to put pen to paper, finding it tedious. The facts are all there and the book makes you want to learn more.

4.0 out of 5 stars History can really be vile..., 27 July 2013
This review is from: Horrible Histories: Terrible Tudors (Kindle Edition)
I started reading this book to brush up my subject knowledge ahead of our school's Tudor topic. Terry Deary provides an enlightening glance at this gruesome period of British history. Comprising of freaky facts and tortuous tales any avid history reader will sit and read with glee BUT Deary's ability to bring history alive will capture those for who history is all leather elbow patches and pipes.
