Horrible Histories: Tudors: A High-Speed History

Take a rollercoaster ride to Tudor times, hurtling through history at mega high speed! Ten breakneck, blood-soaked comic strips race through it all, with sight-seeing stops at all the nasty bits! Here the long and complicated story of the Tudors is told as never before – without being long or complicated! Comic-strip capers dish up all the dreadful details of a truly tyrannical era, starting on Bosworth Battlefield, and ending with Queen Liz the last. En route, you’ll get to take in all kinds of horrible highlights, from Henry VIII, cruel king and hideous husband, to ‘Bloody Mary’ – the mean Queen of Chops! History has never been so speedy!
