'★★★★★ Horrible Histories

is back - and better than ever. Marking 30 years of the beloved

series, The Worst in the World is vintage Terry Deary - deceptively

informative with plenty of gore ... brought to life by

Martin Brown's cartoonishly gory illustrations' - Daily


'Perfect for fans new and old, and packed with Deary's

priceless wit and Brown's perfectly pitched illustrations,

the past has never been so winningly horrible and so hilariously

entertaining!' - Lancashire Evening Post

The Worst in the World is packed full of the

foulest gold, silver and bronze medal winning entries.

Readers can discover what made the cut for the worst job

in history (spoiler alert - it involves a king, a toilet

in a stool and some botty wipes), or the worst ever pirate (must

be the one who tied his own noose for his neck).

Read all about the winners in horrible categories such as:

- diseases,

- battles,

- emperors,

- punishments,

- schools and more.

fully illustrated throughout and packed with horrible

stories - with all the horribly hilarious bits included

with a fresh take on the classic Horrible Histories

style, perfect for fans old and new

the perfect series for anyone looking for a fun

and informative read

Horrible Histories has been entertaining children

and families for generations with books, TV, stage show, magazines,

games and 2019's brilliantly funny Horrible

Histories: the Movie - Rotten Romans.

Read all about the most horrible top threes across history (in

one man's opinion), they're the absolute worst!
