    Man! These were some fine books!

    I must have read a dozen of them. Picts, Vikings, Math, Football... the list never ended. You always had to have MOAR!

    The videos are kinda funny, but I don't see much connection with the books, maybe except the first one.

    I think that they simply used the name to help them along, but the way they present the history is quite similar.

    that one is hilarious.

    I remember that those books were brilliant - I had nearly every in the History series, and every in the geography too. Although they were often funny, some had very heavy moments that really made me think.

    The best books I've ever read, for sure.
