Read full description of the books The Smashing Saxons (Horrible Histories):I thought a few episodes of the TV show were amazing years ago, so when I saw the whole series of books at a used book store in Bulgaria, I decided to start with the Saxons, it being right up the writer's alley and all.
Not impressive. It seems to be a pointless melange of odd or out-of-the-ordinary laws and practices, treated as Saxon habit for 650 years or more. There is a Victorian's fascination with oddities, which I share myself, but not even the oddities were especially noteworthy. It does go to great lengths to ridicule King Arthur, saints, and teachers. I know a lot of you are upset by that.
Read information about the authorA former actor, theatre-director and drama teacher, Deary says he began writing when he was 29. Most famously, he is one of the authors of the Horrible Histories series of books popular among children for their disgusting details, gory information and humorous pictures and among adults for getting children interested in history. Books in the series have been widely translated into other languages and imitated.
A cartoon series has been made of the series of books and was shown on CiTV for a period in 2002.
The first series of a live-action comedy sketch show of the same name was shown on CBBC in 2009 and a second series is due.
Terry is also known widely throughout children and adult reading groups alike for his True Stories series (see below for series list).
He received an Honorary Doctorate of Education from the University of Sunderland in 2000. His numerous accolades also include the Blue Peter "Best Nonfiction Author of the Century" Award in the U.K.
