I like the series, they are funny and tell some of the lesser told parts of history.
One have to remember that they are written for 10-15 year old-ish.
the author have said that it is difficult not to write something wrong, because the first constants used to be considered the truth, but by the time the rest of the book had been written, those truths had been disproved.
Also a good theme in the books is that you shouldn't always believe what a historian have written, because the winner writes the history.

Fish out the facts from the fiction and discover the terrible truth about the great Irish city and its horrible history.
Plot your path to the past with the frightful fold-out map and take a tour of the city's sights.
Picnic with pirates at St Stephen's Green, creep around the cruel cathedrals, then head to Dublin Castle where traitors were tortured and cut-throat Irish chieftains fought to the death.'

Written with the usual Terry Deary wit, this is a superb history book dedicated to the city of DUBLIN.

96 packed pages, split over main chapters:

1. Early Dublin Timeline
2. Viking Dublin
3. The blood-dripping Battle of Clontarf
4. Middle Ages Dublin
5. Cruel cathedrals
6. Dublin quick quiz
7. Tudor and Stuart Dublin
8. Crime and punishment
9. Dublin Castle
10. Georgian to 20th Century Timeline
11. A few foul places to visit
12. Nasty 1916 rebellion

with an introduction and an epilogue.

Also includes a 'frightful fold-out map', from the front cover and a fold-out from the back cover, entitled:

* The Horrible Highlights of Dublin

Written in various fonts, with numerous and humorous black & white illustrations, which are sure to draw the most reluctant eye!

As a Cork woman (2nd city in Ireland) I enjoyed not only learning about the horrible areas of Dublin history but also those relating to Ireland as a whole. The writing and illustrations are first-class. I am a big fan of HH and Terry Deary, books, tv series and stage show and this book continues in the same ilk.
