Fact meets fiction in these thrilling and hilarious historical stories from Philip Ardagh.
Children can read the story of Jane Pinny, a Victorian house maid who just happens to be a talented detective; Tudor boy spy Thomas Snoop; Medieval knight-in-training John Drawbridge; and Kitty Cask - the daughter of a Cornish smuggler.
Funny from first page to last, these books are packed with great characters and exciting plots. Oh, and they're bursting with facts about times gone by that will help children's history studies - without them even realising.

I bought these for an upcoming 7th birthday. The diary format and black and white illustrations on every page make them an attractive read for confident 7-year-olds and possibly an easy read for an older child. They are fiction with an historical content so budding historians would love them!
