Il libro trasporta i giovani lettori nel passato, ai giorni della cavalleria, quando i prodi paladini galoppavano e sferragliavano nelle loro splendenti armature brandendo pesanti spade, mentre ai contadini toccava ripulire i rivoltanti resti dopo le battaglie e tutti vivevano in oscure, orribili, desolanti dimore. Volete sapere perché un cavaliere innamorato si mozzò via un dito? Tutta la santa verità sui cocciutissimi crociati? Come funzionavano le luride latrine dei castelli? Questo libro rivela tutto sui sinistri sotterranei, crudeli crociati, spaventosi spettri che infestavano cupi castelli e racconta tutto sul più famoso uomo in scatola di tutti i tempi: San Giorgio. Età di lettura: da 10 anni.

As always well written, interesting books for children to learn about history in a fun and amusing way.
I was a big fan of the Horrible Histories books back when I was a kid, and so when I won a job lot bundle of them on eBay for a bargain price because of a misspelling in the title, I was delighted to find a few books in there that I hadn’t come across.

Borrowed this from my history loving 10 yo daughter and loved it! I sort of remember these books from being in my later years of school and wish they were around earlier. Really good material for younger children interested in history and highly entertaining for big kids like me too!
This book is amazing. In the usual equation of humor + violence + gore + good drawing = good book, this Horrible History focuses on the era of Knights. It has reports on battles and what gave who the upper hand. This book also contains information about ancient tournaments, such as jousting and melé Leggi tutto
One thing I learned in this book is that when William the Bastard of Normandy came and invaded England in 1066, he brought a pre-fab castle with him. Who knew? I didn't realize that pre fab was around that long!
Oke kinders luister, als je iemand in je leven hebt die jonger is en dol is op geschiedenis dan is er geen enkele serie die ik meer aanraad dan deze serie. Ze zijn geweldig. Ze zijn hilarisch en vol met echte feiten. Boeken voor kinderen worden zo vaak 'verdomd', doen alsof kinderen eigenlijk niets
I was enjoying the facts in this book till I reached the part where it states that Anne Comnene was Turkish. Gosh! How is it possible that someone who writes about history made such a mistake? She was a Byzantine princess and most certainly not of Turkish origin. Well, after that I didn’t really bot Leggi tutto
A fun and informative way to present history to young readers. Why this series hasn't made its way over to the US is beyond me. So much fun I'll gladly read any others in the long, long series I can find.
