This wasn’t my favourite of the Horrible Histories books, but it was still okay. I just felt as though this one didn’t tie together as well as some of the others. I feel like there needs to be a sense of an overall narrative being told, even in a non-fiction book, and that was missing from here.
The good news is that there was plenty of information on the Normans themselves and some pretty entertaining anecdotes, as well as some information on the truth behind the legend of St. George and the dragon. But I won’t spoil it for you here, because if you’re interested then you should read the book. It’s not amazing, but it’ll pass an hour or so, even for an adult.
