Horrible Christmas

Some brief overview of book

As with all the Horrible Histories series, this was good fun. Having collected the books as a child I still enjoy curling up with the audiobooks now, though I do not think they translate into audio as well as many other childhood favourites. The books rely quite heavily upon the illustrations to tie the fragmented sections together, and help the snippets of additional information and occasional joke feel as though it flows neatly.

I was able to imagine the kinds of illustrations that would have accompanied the various chapters, however, so did not find it too disappointing. This is one of few books where I would not recommend the audiobook unless one is unable to read the print copy due to sight loss or similar difficulty, as I do think the series is much improved by the illustrations. As always with this series it was easy to listen to and the facts were entertaining, if often all too brief.

The perfect read for children and young teens, I don't think it stands up particularly well to revisiting as an adult unless, as I find, the cosy nostalgia makes up for the simplicity of the content. That said, as a 10 year old I would have been delighted to find this book in my Christmas stocking, and in a bid to recapture a little of that seasonal thrill I m glad to have had the opportunity to listen to it.
