Great fun

My six year old absolutely loves this series. Keeps him laughing all the way through. Nicely produced with brilliant and engaging narration.

Nostalgic for an Adult, Great listening for a kid.

I remember getting the Horrible Histories books free with cereal and in the Radio Times as a kid, so it was a great bit of nostalgia for me who loved them as a kid. Listening to them as an adult, obviously, not the target audience, but still amusing to listen to, (so would be palatable for any parent having to listen to them on car journeys).

I would say that the books are more interesting, as they are quite visually appealing, the art was always a big draw for me as a kid. That is obviously missing in the audiobook, but the voice acting and performance adds a new aspect of entertainment. (Also means you could by the audiobook, and the book, as they offer the story in different ways).

Was lovely to listen to again, even after several years of history at uni level, and a great starting point for any child interested in history!

Homeschooling

We are radical UNschoolers and this series is GREAT. Engaging, funny, interesting! And educational. We also enjoy the horrible maths and science books.
