Product Description

Review

'You Wouldn't Want to Be a Victorian Schoolchild!' genuinely resonates with the atmosphere of a Victorian school day. The teachers are suitably nasty, the pupils are suitably naughty, and the humorous attention to detail in the illustrations will make for an engaging look at Victorian school days. --Junior Education

Book Description

An entertaining and informative series which explores the more grisly aspects of life in the past. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
John Malam has a real touch when it comes to making "school" topics riveting and this book is no exception. Whether this book is being used in the classroom or for pleasure it is sure to amuse. Packed full of fascinating, and sometimes shocking, facts about our Victorian ancestors, it is very well laid out. This is one of the best non-fiction history books for children I have seen.

Format: Hardcover
This book provides modern young children with an idea of what it was like to be them but in 19th century England.
It is good. It is entertaining. It is informative. And it does seem to be well researched.
So, I would recommend it and agree with the favorable review of the Guardian newspaper.

Format: Paperback
Fabulous book - made my kids laugh out loud! This is how history needs to be presented in school - makes it 'come to life'.
As a writer myself, I feel a curious mixture of delight and envy as I read this book...

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Purchased the book for my son who is studying the victorian period in year 2 .
I would recommend the book as it really caught my sons attention both with the facts and illustrations. He is a good reader and is able to read the book himself which I appreciated. Some other reference books I have purchased for the same subject are not written/displayed in a way that he has wanted to read them himslef.
