Horrible Histories

by Terry Deary
Nick Baker

Audiobook

5 of 5 copies available

Terry Deary and Martin Brown's brilliant books about the nastiest periods in history have now - with the help of some astounding actors and directed by Dirk Maggs - been transformed into a series of audio extravaganzas. Featuring new, extra material not found anywhere in the books, these sound spectaculars are just as thrilling and spilling, funny and fast as their printed counterparts. Horrible Histories are guaranteed to bring you history with the nasty bits left in! No other period in history (apart from most of the others) was as nasty as the Middle Ages. The peasants were revolting, the food was disgusting, and death lurked round every corner. The Knights might have been bold, but a lot of the women were bolder - take Joan of Arc, who had to dress up as a man to be taken seriously! Then there was the nerdy knight who pretended he was a woman in order to get his girl (but the beard was a bit of a giveaway). Learn the filfth, fear and torture your teacher never taught yer! Based on the bestselling books written by Terry Deary and illustrated by Martin Brown. Published by arrangement with Scholastic Ltd.
