The Gunpowder Plot by Liz Gogerly

A bright, colourful book which assumes no previous knowledge, for children of 5-7 years. The book combines historical artwork with short, easy-to-read text suitable for less experienced readers. With a clean, fresh design, clear captions and index, the book is incredibly user-friendly. Young readers will find out all about Guy Fawkes and his fellow plotters and the events leading up to the intended night of the plot.


In the Beginning History series, text level and content correspond with the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority's key stage 1 units, and the spreads have large, dispersed text and bold captions. The books approach history using pictorial, photographic, archaeological and even some written evidence. TES Teacher budding historians get a genuine feel for a particular era.
