Horrible Histories magazine is the funniest, foulest and most gruesome magazine for boys and girls. We have great fun surprising our readers with the stupid and silly side of history combining the best-selling Horrible Histories books, BBC TV show and live stage show. Parents are happy to pick up the magazine because it’s an enjoyable read for their children but totally accurate too. We’re horrible, but hilarious!
