Product description

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)

Book Description

As you would expect from Mr P, great fun but the book is also quite informative. I wasn't necessarily expecting it and I've not checked everything in the book, however I recognize several 'items' as being historically correct. Possibly everything is! I just wanted to add the book to my TP library.

No problems with delivery. Very well packed, received in excellent condition, well on time. The book was every bit as good to read as I thought it would be.

There is very little that can be said about this book – it is not a novel, nor is it a story in its own right. As a companion piece to Pratchett’s ‘Dodger’ it is a reference book presenting facts and anecdotes about Victorian London along with pictures, both modern and contemporary.

As such it is interesting rather than entertaining, although it does have its moments.
I enjoyed it and found many of the facts fascinating, but there is a lack of humour. I came away feeling slightly educated, which is never a bad thing, and even better it was not done in a manner that made it feel like a lesson!

(Very informative about the different methods Victorians had for cleaning chimney’s. Mine is in need of a clean, does anyone know where I can get a goose?)

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.
