Grandson started reading it as soon as it arrived and finished it in a couple of days.
Was reluctant to buy after seeing it on tv, but then read another review above from a junior school teacher who ordered it for his class, so figured it was ok.
So glad I did.
Working through the rest of the Horrible History titles now!
What a fantastic way to get kids interested in history!

Still very entertaining and interesting. It gives an idea of what it must have been like to live through WW2 on the Home Front, but not as educational as other Titles in the series, eg Terrible Tudors (which is brilliant). There is nothing about the battles or the various campaigns (probably because these would not be suitable for a humorous treatment) and it focusses on life in Britain (rationing, evacuation etc). Still a very enjoyable CD, entertaining for whole family.

My son is covering the Second World War at school and this book makes it more 'fun' to learn. Not that wars are fun but what I mean is that the way Horrible Histories is written makes children engage so much more. So this book comes highly recommended.

This is a fab series of books and every child should read them.It gives a child insight and gives them a thirst for knowledge about the past.Appeals to girls and boys equally. There are limited books out there that can say i can say that about.
