      my 11 year old struggles with his reading,but he loves to read about history, and i've bought him a few sets of books like diary of a whimpy kid, and shreaderman and it helps him so much with improving his reading levels. horrible histories would be a great additition to his set of books......

      Are these histories funnier than those of Sherman and his little boy? Do Moose and Squirrel know about them?
