Synopsis

Fiendish Crimes and Punishing Times by John Townsend

Raintree Freestyle is a new, eye-catching range of colourful non-fiction books for the less able and reluctant reader, aged between 11 and 15 years old. Designed for students with a reading age of 11 and 13 years old, these high interest books will enable readers to encounter curriculum-linked topics at an appropriate reading level. This latest addition to our popular 'painful history' series provides readers with a fascinating look at how life as a child has dramatically changed through the ages, from ancient times to modern day. Each title takes an aspect of life to which all children can relate, such as school, illness and family, in order to examine how children have been treated - and mistreated - throughout history. Each title includes real-life photos and accounts that offer a close-up glimpse and bring the subject to life. 'What's it like now?' feature compares children's lives through time so that readers can relate the content to their own lives. It is an excellent resource to hook reluctant readers or those usually turned off by history.
