Horrible Histories: 2010

New year! New nasty bits! The Horrible Histories annual is back – and it’s nastier than ever, all set to bust holiday boredom yet again! Filled with treacherous tyrants, brutal buccaneers, evil emperors and violent villains, it’s full of foul folk you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley – but who are great to read about on a dark winter’s night. From the awesome Ancient World to the monstrous Middle Ages, and from the sinister 1700s to the terrible 20th Century, this book’s got the beastliest battles, the deadliest diseases and the rowdiest revolutions. So pep up the year with some horrible cheer from history’s yuckiest moments! Eeek!
