Vlad and the Great Fire of London is a picture book that supports the English history curriculum. Through Vlad's story and full colour illustrations it shows how the fire is believed to have started, how it spread and what Londoners did to fight it and escape it.
In this adventure Vlad encounters Skipper Thomas Crisp, Second Lieutenant Walter Tull, Dr Phoebe Chapple and the Red Baron.
Once again Vlad narrates a key moment in history as he experiences it with his friend. This picture book also includes a map, glossary and fact file to put the story in context.
Find out about Florence, her nurses and Scutari Hospital through the eyes of Vlad the flea and Loxton the rat. Vlad narrates the tale as the nurses take charge and clean ... with soap! But there are other people in the hospital who are not happy with this new arrangement, and the friends will soon come up against both their nemesis and a shadowy thief in their midst. Who will win and who will have to leave?
A fact file at the end of the book clarifies which characters are real and which are fictional. There are 32 pages of colour illustrations bringing the story to life.
Previous Vlad stories are set during the Great Fire of London and the First World War. Each story has a separate Activity Book with puzzles and games and the Reading Riddle website has links and educational resources for teaching the topic.
