Horrible Histories celebrates 25th anniversary with Paul Lamond puzzles

Paul Lamond Games has unveiled a new series of fun and educational puzzles from the bestselling children’s history book series, Horrible Histories at this year’s Autumn Fair.

The successful Horrible Histories series, written by Terry Deary and illustrated by Martin Brown, celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, marking a quarter of a century of informing and entertaining children through the annals of time.

As part of the celebrations, Paul Lamond Games has launched a collection of 250 piece puzzles that, available from this September, feature some of the most iconic drawings from illustrator Brown, along with jokes and facts. The jigsaws bring to life famous titles including Awful Egyptians, Rotten Romans, Terrifying Tudors and Vicious Vikings.

Richard Wells, managing director at Paul Lamond Games, said: “Horrible Histories is an evergreen brand and loved by children of primary school age which is very much our marketplace. We are now in the countdown to Christmas which is a dominant period for games and puzzles, so we are very excited to be launching this new puzzle series from such a sought-after brand at a key time.”

The Horrible Histories series will join Paul Lamond’s renowned literacy puzzle ranges that include Where’s Wally, Roald Dahl and The World of David Walliams.
