Terry Deary – Dark Knights and Dingy Castles | Review

Title: Dark Knights and Dingy Castles

Author: Terry Deary

Type: Non-Fiction

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.

It’s made even better by the fact that they were all about half again as long as a regular Horrible Histories book, which meant there was more for me to geek out on, and that this one in particular focusses on medieval history, which is probably my favourite period, all things considered.

This one is worth reading whether you’re a kid or an adult, and especially so if you’re into medieval stuff and castles. The sense of humour is occasionally juvenile, but the information itself is solid gold. It’s arguably now one of my favourites of his!

I missed the He-Man hype when I was a kid and I’m kind of sad about it. Plus these were Ladybird books.
