The Gunpowder Plot by Gillian Clements


The Gunpowder Plot by Gillian Clements

Guy Fawkes was about to blow up the Houses of Parliament when the Gunpowder Plot was discovered in 1606. Find out who else was involved and how a terrible tragedy was narrowly avoided! There are some moments in history that are so dramatic or important that people remember them forever. In words and pictures, Gillian Clements tells the stories of these Great Events. These books are perfect for the emerging independent reader at upper Key Stage 1. Simple narrative text and lively, informative line illustrations. Designed to encourage a sense of history, not just give the facts.
