Wonderful 👏👏👏

This book was very informative and funny and the story was laid out very cleverly. Me and my brother love the show. l think it’s fine for anyone over the age of 8, adults included. Check out his other books because they’re all as brilliant as this one. Hope you enjoy. (You can watch the program on BBC iPlayer)

Horrible Histories: Terrible Tudors Written By Terry Deary and Martin Brown

The Terrible Tudors are definitely as Terrible as their name suggests. Many of the rulers in the Tudor era were some of the most Terrifying of all the kings and queens that have reigned over Britain.

Some these fascinating facts are bursting with gory details e.g. Blood, Executions and most disgusting of all Poo.

Medicine in the Tudor era was almost as stupid as their punishments which include; Hanging, Execution and being Burnt Alive. The medicines include; Slicing open a recently dead pigeon and placing them on your plague spots, Swallowing young frogs of recently dead spiders with butter to cure asthma.

How disappointing ...

There is a “warning” at the beginning that this is not for listeners over 40. I should have listened. I love history in comic fashion, but this has zero depth ...

Good

It was good, not for squeamish people though, (or if you are trying to get to sleep).
