Synopsis

Victorians by John Townsend

Time to take a sideways look at the bizzare and outrageous from throughout history - and it's all TRUE! Which new material got the Victorians building mad? Who was the bad guy that committed terrible crimes in London? Which dangerous job was banned for boys under 10? Find out the answers to these questions inside, along with lots of facts, quizzes, and other bonkers stuff as you take a bumpy journey into the darkest crannies of Victorian history with Mad, Bad and Just Plain Dangerous!
