I remember when they released Horrible Histories about 20 years ago. My oldest kids were still in primary school, and dreaded the old history books. They essentially found them stuffy and heavy going. Along came the Horrible Histories and changed their perspective. I assume they changed the perspective of so many children and made history a more exciting and accessible subject for many. The author Terry Dreary has finished his 60th book, and will not write any more books, according to an article in the Daily Mail. I know there have been so many spin-offs and we at Bombadil wish Terry Deary all the best and thank him for the revolution he has started.
