The Great Fire of London

This great little book from the Beginning History series will set fire to children’s curiosity! In simple, informative text and dramatic pictures, it shows what happened one fateful night in 1666, when a fire broke out in a bakery on Pudding Lane, changing the face of London forever. Find out how the fire started, how firefighters tried to stop it, how the population fled, and how a new London rose from the ashes of the medieval city! Written for newcomers to reading, this book is wonderfully vivid and accessible, illustrating the facts through a rich variety of pictures and photographs. It supports the Key Stage 1 history curriculum, and will give readers a real thirst for learning!
