Following her, Topher finds himself in Victorian London where disease is rife and the Thames is clogged with stinking sewage!

More About the Author

I love writing stories. Who for - should I say for whom? It depends on the subject matter. I wrote PEACE WEAVERS for teens because it's about teens. Ditto INSIDE and HANGMAN. For teens I write the books I have to: they're in my head and they have to get out. They're serious stuff - should you fight for your country? What's it like INSIDE our prisons? What do you do when you know someone is being bullied?

I most like writing fun stuff for the very young and I didn't start doing this till I was a grandmother. I think there's too much pressure on young children these days and I want to make them laugh. BIG RED BATH started with bath time fun. I got the idea for KISSES ARE YUK from my grandson who forbade me to kiss him when I met him from school. CLASS TWO AT THE ZOO started in a classroom. It's outrageous fun - safe-scary - with a happy ending. I like to empower children in my stories. In life they're being told what to do all day long. They're not free to roam. In story I like them to be in charge.

I love history. Our past made us what we are - all of us. I love to time travel and return to our 21st century, troubled maybe, but with many advantages over the distant past. My TIME TRAVELLING CAT experiences the best and worst of all worlds - Egyptian, Roman, Aztec,Tudor, Viking and Victorian so far. My real-life cat, Perdita, is a comfort and an inspiration.

I love most aspects of writing, except perhaps the loneliness. As an extrovert, unusual in a writer I think, I love being invited to schools, libraries and festivals to talk about my work and read it aloud. I'm a terrible show-off. Maybe that's what I am - a performer! I read Drama at Manchester University and I am a bit of a drama queen. I'm THRILLED that BIG RED BATH is going to be a show in the live theatre, my first love. I wonder if I'll get a part.

That's enough I think. If you want to know more go to my website www.juliajarman.com - or better still read my books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pacy Read about Stinky Victorians 15 Aug 2010
This is going to be a winner with my Year 6s, huge fans of this series. This is Horrible History at its best with all the horrible facts conveyed by a pacy gripping narrative. Topher and Ka his time travelling cat find themeslves in London in 1858, the year the river Thames came to a standstill because it was so full of sewage. The smell drove MPs from the Houses of Parliament and urged on by Queen Victoria herself, the PM decided at last that Something Must Be Done. Enter Joseph Bazalgette, engineer extraordinaire, who built the sewers that transformed London. But Bazalgette had enemies, not least the owners of the big houses that had to be destoyed to build his system. The plot centres on an attempt to murder Bazalgette, discovered by our hero and his cat. A largely unsung hero this book should do something to make Bazalgette as well known as he deserves. Florence Nightingale also makes an appearance though as one of the many who resisted the engineer's claim that sewage was causing the cholera epidemics that swept through the city. An excellent informative fast moving thriller.
