Read full description of the books The Vicious Vikings: AND The Measly Middle Ages:With the Horrible Histories series the Scholastic Press have made a real breakthrough in the presentation of "boring old historical facts" for children of all ages. This factually accurate, interactive fun series, characteristically combines jokey narration, lists of mouth-watering "horrible" questions and answers and hilarious comic-strip cartoons. Each book covers one of the periods generally covered at some stage in the primary and secondary school syllabus. More than 14 titles exist including The Rotten Romans, The Groovy Greeks, The Vile Victorians, The Awesome Egyptians.... and so on. The hardback edition of The Vicious Vikings and The Measly Middle Ages consists of two books in one and by the time you've laughed and squirmed your way through both of them there is almost nothing you won't know about the Vikings, the Saxons and the Middle Ages. --Tamsin Palmer
