The Victorians as they've never been seen before! History with a twist! Would you like to outsmart your teachers? Show them how much you know about the appalling Victorians? Then read this vile volume! But whatever you do, don’t read it in bed or you’ll have nightmares about desperate disasters, scurrilous scandals and rip-roaring riots: they were all the rage in the Victorian times. Meet some larger-than-life characters: quarrelsome quarry owners, irksome ironmongers, saintly strikers, riotous rebels, and crafty crooks. Find out about their colourful crimes and painful punishments.
