NEW HH 2016: Staggering Storytellers Info!

We have now found out that the next episode in Series 7 will officially be entitled: ‘Staggering Storytellers’. Below is a full description of the episode:

As part of Get Reading 2016, the award-winning Horrible Histories returns with a one-off special about Staggering Storytellers. Who wrote the first detective novel? When were books invented? Plus, learn how a party at Lord Byron’s house led to the writing of the gothic masterpiece Frankenstein and how Charles Dickens was the Harry Styles of his day.  Roald Dahl enters the Great Writer’s Bake Off with a worm cake, competing against Lewis Carroll and Enid Blyton! And, imagine what would happen if Beatrix Potter, Malorie Blackman, Enid Blyton and Jacqueline Wilson formed a girl band! This episode takes a look at some of literature’s greatest works and history’s wackiest writers, from Stone Age storytellers right up to the modern day; and as always, our trusty host Rattus guides the way, trying to write a story of his own!

That nicely sums it up! We also have the first promotional image, amongst others below:
