If you’ve read my other Horrible Histories reviews, you’ve probably noticed a recurring theme – I always say that the books are good, but not as good as The Vicious Vikings. Well, The Vicious Vikings is finally here, and let me let you in to a little secret – it’s awesome.
And the best part of it is, you don’t need to be a history geek to enjoy reading it – hell, you don’t even need to be a kid! The Vikings were a fascinating race, and Deary tells their story with obvious passion – it’s a passion that’s contagious, and Martin Brown‘s fantastic illustrations help to complete this children’s masterpiece.
