W love Terry Deary,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Rotten Romans (Horrible Histories) (Audio CD)
We love listening to Terry Deary's histories in the car. I like to tell myself that they are educational, and they are in their way, though they don't feel like it. More importantly, they get my child - and me - interested in history. There are lots of CDs in the Horrible Histories series, and this is one of the best we've heard yet - we like the Vicious Vikings too.
This is aimed at kids (not too young though), but there are some funny items designed to keep us adults amused, like the Jonathan Ross sound-alike in the 'worst emperor of the lot' awards and some wonderfully bad puns.
I find some of the books in the series a bit too heavy on the horrid side, but there's nothing really disgusting in the audio versions. This is partly because the CDs are a slimmed down version of the books, but also perhaps the BBC is aware that even very young children may here the audio version.
