Synopsis

Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot by Izzi Howell

Find out why we remember the famous Gunpowder Plot of 1605, where Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament - with the king inside! This simple, friendly children's first history series, aimed at readers aged 5 and up, takes a close look at some key events and personalities through history and reveals how and why they are still important to us today. A perfect support to learning about history at Key Stage 1, each book uses a rich variety of historical sources, from diaries to paintings, to bring events to life, while simple historical vocabulary is introduced and explained. Each book also features a simple timeline and explores how we find about the past. All text has been carefully checked by a historian.
