SEPTEMBER - HistoryReads for Kids

Horrible Histories
Horrible Histories is a series of illustrated history books designed to engage children in history by presenting the unusual, gory, or unpleasant aspects in a tongue-in-cheek manner in contrast to the formality of lessons taught in school. The series has proved exceptionally successful in terms of commercial revenue. The books are written by Terry Deary, Peter Hepplewhite and Neil Tonge.

Lady Grace Mysteries (mixed)
The Lady Grace Mysteries is a detective fiction series about the escapades of Lady Grace Cavendish, a maid of honour to Queen Elizabeth I. The books are written in the style of a diary. Each book sees her trying to solve a mystery of the royal court. The stories are set in 1569 and 1570, and there are twelve books so far.  

Littlenose  by John Grant
Littlenose lived long, long, ago, when fierce wild animals roam the land, and it is very cold. His home is a cave, his clothes are made of fur, and his pet is a woolly mammoth called Two-Eyes. 
Wherever he goes, Littlenose the Neanderthal finds himself amid all sorts of entertaining antics. He doesn't go to school but still has plenty to learn: how to track animals, how to find his way through the forest and which berries are good to eat, and which are poisonous. But whether he's exploring caves, taking a trip down the river, or rescuing his father from a deep pit, somehow Littlenose always seems to end up in trouble in this collection of informative and humourous stories.

Battle Boy  by Charlie Carter
These books are designed to engage reluctant readers (high interest, low-level reading), and anyone interested in battles, history, time travel, adventure, great stories and gadgets galore...
