Horrible Histories Beastly Book Set
Ten Beastly Books
From Awful Egyptians and Groovy Greeks to the Woeful Second World War, by way of Measly Middle Ages, Terrifying Tudors and Vile Victorians, here is Terry Deary's 'history with the nasty bits left in'. Awash in blood and guts, shameless alliteration, and drawings by Martin Brown, the Beastly Book Set contains ten volumes; the other four books are Rotten Romans, Vicious Vikings, Gorgeous Georgians and the Frightful First World War.
Mummies and Mayhem
Terry Deary's Tales
This compilation from the bestselling author of the Horrible Histories series collects The Gold in the Grave, The Magic and the Mummy, The Phantom and the Fisherman and The Plot on the Pyramid – four previously published, fact-based stories of extraordinary Egyptians. The straightforward text is accompanied by amusing black-and-white illustrations, making the book appealing to less confident readers. Age 7+
Deadly Days in History
Awful assassinations, bloody battles, revolting revolutions and fearful famines... History has always been horrible (or at least since 1993 when Horrible Histories first appeared), but this book is a selection of its most dreadful dates. Beneath the blood and bullets, the book is packed with proper historical facts on 50 gruesome events, from a massacre in Talheim around 5000 BCE to a Nazi death camp. Age 9+
