The Gunpowder Plot: Great Events (English Edition) Very informative and fun book for children The great events of British history are part of our shared heritage and it is important that children know the facts behind the famous dates from a young age In this series, Gillian Clements tells the stories of some of these events through a lively combination of text and illustration including some speech bubbles, labelled maps etc In this way she makes history child friendly and accessible but still manages to incorporate, wherever possible, primary source material such as eyewitness accounts and documentary evidence THE GREAT FIRE OF LONDON retells the events leading up to the fire ofand its consequences THE GUNPOWDER PLOT looks at the reasons for the plan to blow up the houses of Parliament in , and the key figures involved including Guy Fawkes Each book has been thoroughly checked by a history educationalist for accuracy, language levels and appropriate content, and a timeline and glossary are included These simple, gently humorous stories give readers the information they need and encourage the development of a real sense of history and how it works Great book for kids just needed a few pictures Daughter was doing this as part of a class project Good brief history, with the added benefit that she could read it too Excellent book for primary school library. Boooooom This is one of a series of books which look at Great Events in history and are aimed at KS1 ideal for Year 2 They are packed with black and white illustrations as well as a fair amount of text This particular book looks at The Gunpowder Plot and explains who Guy Fawkes, and the other plotters were, and why they tried to kill King James Although this is a non fiction book, the story is told simply, but not in a dry way You do see an illustration of Guy Fawkes on a rack, the execution of the plotters and their heads on spikes but the illustrations are not graphic and done in a cartoon like way considering what happened, I think colour illustrations would have been too gory and black and white are best I read this with my niece, who is five, and she was interested in the book and was not unduly upset by the events as they were explained This was the reality and is covered realistically, but gently Other books in the series cover the Great Fire of London, the Battle of Hastings, the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the Spanish Armada, Remembrance Day, the Battle of Britain and the First Moon Landing Good, early non fiction books for children. This brown book band book goes into the background of the gunpowder plot in a simple way Each page is about 1 2 text, 1 2 black and white line drawing, with simple language and dealing with the facts in an unbiased and non emotive way Even the torture and eventual execution of the plotters is told in a matter of fact way This would make a good guided reading book for school and I notice this book is part of a series of historical books called great events My 7 year old daughter liked this illustrated there are black and white pictures throughout history book about the Gun Powder plot It s quite detailed and clear, though I found it a big gruesome in places with the various depictions of heads on spikes and people being hung, drawn and quartered It s a bit like Horrible Histories, but with less obvious humour, but an interesting overview nonetheless.
