Horrible Histories is a series of illustrated history books published in the United Kingdom by Scholastic , and part of the Horrible Histories franchise . They are designed to engage children in history by presenting the unusual, gory, or unpleasant aspects in a tongue-in-cheek manner in contrast to the formality of lessons taught in school. The books are written by Terry Deary , Peter Hepplewhite and Neil Tonge and illustrated by Martin Brown , Mike Phillips , Phillip Reeve , and Kate Sheppard.

The first titles in the series, The Terrible Tudors and The Awesome Egyptians , were published in June 1993.

[2] [3] The books have had tie-ins with newspapers such as The Telegraph , [4] as well as audio-book tie-ins distributed with breakfast cereals. [5]

The fifth book in the series, Blitzed Brits , was published in 1995, by chance coinciding with the 50th anniversary of VE day [10] . The book reached no. 1 on the bestseller list. Deary decided that the book only gave the British viewpoint during World War II and in the interests of balance wrote Woeful Second World War which focused on the wartime experiences in France, Poland, Germany and Russia . This book was published in September 1999, which coincided with the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II [8]
