My 13 year son read this book the first day he got it! He couldn't put it down and is hoping for a sequel.

Not only gets the kids interested in history with fun & factual information but they also had fun connecting it to places they are studying in school!

I read this book a million times. It is funny and Thor is really weird.My favorite part was reading about the water castle with the fountains and statues with a weird troll facse to show it is a trick statue. I reccomend this to kids who like a good laugh. Also the Haunted Histories timeline ends with 2010 first I pad is created LOL.

I have really enjoyed sharing this book with my granddaughters. We had so much fun talking about what history was. The chapters were clear and just the right length. The illustrations added so much! It is a perfect book to share between kids and adults. We are really looking forward to the next one. I would recommend this for any child.

I really enjoyed the way this book uses comparative history - history as it is really done professionally and academically - instead of linear history. It is a bit more challenging, but the authors make the information very accessible to their young readers through their language, examples, and illustrations. I also like how the authors give examples of each theme (palaces, castles, and dungeons) from around the world, instead of just sticking with Western Europe. A recent article states that the authors are creating a free, online historical research tool for kids based on the HH books. That should be a nice addition to the resources and indexes already in the book. As a professor of education, I believe that the HH format will make the book accessible to reluctant readers, something that is sorely needed. The dozen or more children I personally know who are currently reading HH - strong and weak readers alike - are loving this book. They are hoping for even more ghosts in the next book in the series.
