Terry Deary – the author of Horrible Histories said: “I’m not a historian, but I want to change the world, attack the elite. Overturn the hierarchy, look at my stories and you’ll notice that the villains are always those in power. The heroes are the little people.” In his series of Horrible Histories, Deary states that he doesn’t just want to create history books, but simply stories about people in dramatic scenarios combined with jokes. When Deary’s son was asked about his opinions on the books, he stated: “They’re brilliant. Because you learn stuff, and you laugh at the same time.” Deary is known as a very straightforward writer that paints a very real picture with real facts of the terrible and tragic history of different regions of the world, and even though you can see Deary’s personality portrayed in his work that brings forth humour and silliness, his goal was always to portray the terrible acts of past evil aristocracies.

In the 20 books collection of Horrible Histories Blood Curdling, you can find titles such as: “Gorgeous Georgians” that talks about lords and ladies with sneaky evil schemes, their hygiene problems and the real hardships of the poor! From raging revolutions, salvage pirates and kids who went to war with their teachers. In “Terrible Tudors”, you can learn about how the Tudors tortured or Henry VIII’s marriage with a horse. Here at Books2Door, we want to encourage a love of reading in all children. That's why we have been offering exceptional books at affordable prices since 2004.
