They are great books! My kids loved them! They present facts with a humorous twist and are pretty accurate although very brief and selective in what they include. I would say they are best read by upper Pr kids though good readers from lower Pr might enjoy them too. My kids continued to dip into them up to lower sec.

The Horrible series is very extensive. There is the Horrible Science, Horrible Maths, Horrible Geography.

I got the whole range n very reluctant to give them away.
