Top Ten is a series of spin-offs of the Horrible Histories illustrated history books. Each book is made up of ten short stories made with a common theme, author or cultural background. The books retell the stories in as abridged versions, shortened to appeal to younger readers. These versions often use a number of unusual formats, such as diary, script, or cartoon. The stories alternate chapters with factual sections about the theme in question. Factual sections take the form of "Top Ten" lists of information, and the book as a whole is organized as an ascending "chart" which ranks stories counting down. The series is written by a variety of authors.

The series has been recently renamed to "10 Best Ever".[1]
