Synopsis

Guy Fawkes by Harriet Castor, Peter Kent

This big book format enhances the impact of this successful biographical storybook. Guy Fawkes tells the story of this man's life, from his early years divided between the Catholic and Protestant faiths of his parents, through his rebellious scheming to his eventual execution for his part in the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. Line illustrations and speech bubbles divide the main text into manageable paragraphs, making the subject more accessible to younger readers. Guy Fawkes supports the National Curriculum for history and the National Literacy Strategy. Additional notes at the front suggests ways that teachers can use the big book as part of a literacy hour. These have been prepared by Gill Matthews, a consultant for the National Literacy Strategy (non-fiction).
