Synopsis

The World's Worst Jobs by Tracey Turner

Fancy spending your days cleaning sewers with no protective clothing, letting mosquitoes turn you into a human pincushion for medical research, or popping up a chimney with a brush for a spot of cleaning? Then The World's Worst Jobs is the book for you. From Victorian toshers who sifted London's sewage for treasure, to Roman gladiators who fought to the death on a daily basis, find out all about the hardest, most revolting and most hilarious jobs in the world through history. Fantastically funny and delightfully disgusting, this is an eye-opening look at historical and modern day jobs that will leave young readers entertained and astounded.

Reviews

The underlying reality of the past...[is] subtly but humorously cushioned by a series of quirky and funny cartoons. Not for the squeamish, but most informative. Irish Examiner
