Tudors is just one of the Horrible History Series of books by Terry
Deary. It looks at how people lived in Tudor times – who ruled
them and how it affected the people of the time. The book also describes
what people ate, how they dressed and their fun and sports.
However, it is by no means an ordinary history book. It is a highly
enjoyable read, very humorous and entertaining.
of the children in the Kilmhil Book Club enjoyed it. They thought
it was funny and that the illustrations, puzzles and quizzes made
the story even more enjoyable.
Favourite parts were the chapter on sports and games that the Tudors
played, and the parts on the strange potions and cures that were
used for various ailments.
Some children however found all the dates confusing and had to re-read
some passages to keep track of the story.
