Review

"This fascinating guide to Victorian London is crammed with facts and figures, gossip and slang, and all presented in authentic typefaces and illustrated with original etchings. A sheer delight!" (The Good Book Guide)

"A very interesting and informative book." (Guardian Children's Review Team)

"Dodger’s Guide to London is clearly one for the young enquiring mind, who wishes to know more about the real Victorian London, as well as a little of Pratchett’s fictional one . . . the reader is almost guaranteed to come away with something they didn’t know before." (sffworld.com)

"Dodger’s Guide to London would be a delightful introduction for young readers with an interest in history, as Dodger would be an ideal first step into Pratchett’s world. For long time fans and older readers, this is a gorgeous addition to an already fantastic collection." (Geek Planet)

This is a very good sideways look at the whims and history of every day Londoners (as were) with lots of very entertaining (proper) history thrown in for good measure. You have to cast your mind into the mood to fully appreciate it though. May be not to everyone's taste as we do not all relate to London. Would be very interesting if someone could get hold of stories, anecdotes and history of other cities around the British Isles.

Dodger is a pleasant book about sewers in Victorian London, with many leisurely strolls among the flotsam and jetsam that made fortunes for some lucky fellows.
This pretty little picture book collects Punch cartoons and remarks by folks who drifted in and out of the first book. Sort of a vade mecum, if your Way-Back machine is in good nick.
If you enjoyed Dodger, you want this book. It is less obsessed with Poo; Sir Terry appears to have got it out of his system. Gesundheit.

This was bought to keep my daughter's collection of Pratchett up to date. She was delighted and liked the 'take' on London that Pratchett has imagined.

This was a Christmas present from my wife, but the amount of facts contained in it must have taken up a lot of research time, a lot !
May not have purchased it myself, but, glad I got it. A mine of information to interest anyone seeking knowledge about London.

Dodger Dodger was a non-discworld book published in 2012.
The story is set "broadly in the first quarter of Queen Victoria's reign", which would be in the years between 1837 and 1853.

For fictional purposes Mr Pratchett had to "tweak" history a little to include Sir Robert Peel.

This is a superb guide to the world of Dodger and that time. Exceptionally well researched.

Nice companion to Dodger, really pleased that this came out as I kind of missed Dodger when I finished the book.
The usual quality illustrations litter an interesting little addition to the Dodger novel

I was fascinated by the detaills of London life in Dickens day, mch more accessible to me than the Dickens novels, which i found hard going apart, from A tale of Two Cities.
