Horrible Histories: The Horrible History of Britain and Ireland
Gore at your door! Horrible gets local in this yucky look at your very own nasty nation. It even includes a perilous poster. Cool! Did the Black Death strike on your doorstep? Perhaps the Jack the Ripper murders happened just down the road. Was there a spud famine, a bloody battle or a Blitz bombing? This book will help you to find out. Yup – it’s the bloody history of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales: and we think it’s the nastiest history of all. The Battle of Hastings, the Great Fire of London and loads more horrid happenings are all right here. In frightful facts, foul funnies and (you guessed it) nasty bits!
