    1. Pretty good I chose 4 stars because it was really nice but I just hope next time, add even MORE creepy facts

    2. Easy reading for whom who wanna touch the surface of history in 20th century of UK Good to be the first step to start studying history.

    3. The 20th Century is a part of the Horrible Histories series written by Terry Deary, with this book being a special edition It contains a summary of the entire 20th Century, covering one decade in each chapter This book contained elements of a typical Horrible Histories book, with a timeline, interesting illustrations, diary entries and also some excellent handpicked events making history rather interesting My expectation on Horrible Histories novels have always been high, as I ve learnt about W [...]

    4. I like the Horrible Histories series, I discovered these books when I was little and I still enjoy reading these series There is only one thing that always had been bothering me is the silly jokes in text and drawing , maybe I am too serious, who knows There were two inaccuracies in this book, what I noticed First it says that Chernobyl is in Russia when actually it is in Ukraine And the book tells that bra was invented in 1913 what is not accurate.

    5. Considering that the book is primarily written for pre teens, it is pretty good and witty at times even though a lot of the wit s been lost in translation , rather basic but quirky, but also out dated Aside from that, the illustrations are good, they serve the point All in all, a book which will satisfy young know it alls.

    6. these books are a fantastic way to get kids engaged in history they tend to be from a British pov if Britain had anything to do with the subject anyway , but they provide fantastic descriptions of what life was like and are a great jumping off point They re great for any age

    7. Horrible Histories is a series of illustrated books published in the UK by They are designed to get children interested in history by concentrating on the trivial, unusual, gory, or unpleasant They are exceptionally well loved by my history loving children

    8. There is really no better way to get kids interested in history than by giving them a Terry Deary Horrible Histories I loved these books as a kid and I love to collect them now Deary s take on history is hilarious and interesting It may not all be true but you definitely learn something

    9. 2015 reading challenge a nonfiction bookPretty good, with lots of interesting information and humor I only wish it was called The 20th Century in Britain, with an occasional reference to other countries That would ve been accurate.

    10. This book was about that the women are saying that they should be able to vote What I feel about this book is that it is impressive because it talks about George Washington and other people that are presidents I would recommend this book to Michelle Obama because she talks about rights.

    11. A great way to document the changes in the 20th century It mainly focuses on the UK but in a way makes it simple for children to enjoy.

    12. Thanks Write lots of books man I really enjoyed this book Are you going to make one about the Japanese next

    13. Probably great for kids, but to me it tried to cover far to much in to shorter space The individual books dealing with shorter spans of history are a bit better.
