Terry Deary – The Smashing Saxons


The Smashing Saxons is good but not great, one of the lesser Horrible Histories books and certainly one of the easiest to overlook. It’s still a good read, and great for teaching kids about history, but The Vicious Vikings and The Rotten Romans blow it out of the water for entertainment value.

Still, the cartoons are fantastic and Terry Deary always leaves a bit of his personality behind in the books that he writes, and when you consider you can pick up a used copy online for a couple of quid plus postage, it’s not bad! Just be sure to get the other Horrible Histories books, first.
