A Worthy Companion To The Best-selling Series of Eduactional Books.
12 July 2010 | by (Japatchygolialand) – See all my reviews

Horrible Histories teaches children about the Vile Victorians, Awesome Egyptians, Terrible Tudors and much more while delivering the information with jokes, word play and having a cross between normal, modern Britain and the age it is focusing on to make it more enjoyable to learn than sitting in a dull, claustrophobic classroom looking around at children messing and teachers longing for the day of back-breaking punishment to be over. I'm no teacher,I'm an eleven year old, but I still think that this TV program sticks out from mind numbing things like Most Haunted and anything on Living. It is infinitely better than being forced to watch Fox News, and children from 8 to 12 will sit down and watch this. They don't see it as schoolwork, they see it as a quite funny way to spend 27 minutes. Instead of being sat inside a dark room drooling at a computer screen, pick up Season 1 on DVD and have a right good laugh. Maybe you could even interest your kids in the series of books by Terry Deary. There are books, cartoons, audio CDs and now a live action television program to add to the Horrible Histories franchise. 9 out of 10. Also, huge thanks to everyone who rated this useful!
