Written with the typical Deary humour, in a variety of type styles and black & white illustrations/cartoons throughout, from Martin Brown.
It was very gross. I like a bit of gross now and then that's why I gave it one of it`s stars for. I would recommend this book to a person who likes gross and likes having a book that makes them laugh.
And the best part of it is, you don’t need to be a history geek to enjoy reading it – hell, you don’t even need to be a kid! The Vikings were a fascinating race, and Deary tells their story with obvious passion – it’s a passion that’s contagious, and Martin Brown‘s fantastic illustrations help to complete this children’s masterpiece.
Words cannot express just how terrible this DVD is! Honestly, if you've read any of the books or seen any episodes of the hilarious TV programme you'd probably think, as I did, that anything associated with Horrible Histories would be great - well this isn't! We actually couldn't watch it! It has the most insanely irritating background music, which continues throughout the entire DVD, and is the most trashy, dumbed-down and downright irritating kids' DVD you could imagine. It's the sort of thing they force terrorist suspects to watch when they're trying to extract a confession. I'll have to stop writing now or I'll start using language innappropriate for a kids' DVD. It's so bad it's difficult to believe that anyone thought it was of publishable standard.
