Grisly history and fiery accusations await in this piping hot history of the Great Fire of London!As if the plague wasn’t bad enough, here comes the fiery antidote! As famous diary-keeper Samuel Pepys, you’ll witness four ferocious days of fire and smoke, and live to tell the tale. Find out how people survived in the tightly-packed, plague-ridden streets of London in 1666, how they coped in the aftermath of the Pudding Lane disaster and all importantly, whodunnit! – or at least who we think dunnit!The ever-popular You Wouldn’t Want to Be series transports readers to the grisliest times and places in history, perfect for reluctant readers. The first-person narrative approach puts children in the shoes of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived. Humorous cartoon-style illustrations bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events.
