Cissy from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

This book was really good because it had a lot of interesting facts and some weird ones too I really enjoyed it .My favourite King was Albert the Unready because he peed in the holy water. I would recommend this book to someone who wants to find about the old Kings and Queens. It was full of amazing illustrations by Martin Brown. It made me feel addicted to it . Are you going to read it?

Chloe from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

Horrible histories is a factual book filled with crazy kings, vicious queens and catchy poems. I found this book very intriguing and interesting , I just couldnâ?™t put it down! My favourite monarch has to be Ethelred the unready a hilarious knight with an unready personality! I loved reading about all the kings and queens and their puzzling lives and their whacky personalities. I would recommend this book to people who likes learning about history, ( the non boring one including teachers) and famous family trees.
