Minulý týden se mě kolegyně ptala na oblíbený Děsivky. Jo, tohle jsou ony a skvěle se hodí k nynější situaci jako úžasná satira.

My favourite thing about the Horrible Histories series is that Terry Deary doesn't shy away from the horrid stuff that people did to one another. Though I felt this one was a bit lacking on some fronts, it is still a great edition to the series.
