My Hero with Terry Deary and Huck McKenna

In the first of our My Hero films, we meet thirteen-year-old Huck McKenna, who just loves history - particularly the horrible bits!  So it's no surprise that Terry Deary, author of the world famous Horrible Histories, is his big hero.  Terry guides this budding young author along the road to success, by asking him to write a scene for a play, then direct it, in a real theatre, with professional actors, who also tour with the stage version of Horrible Histories.
