Synopsis

Time Tram Dundee by Matthew Fitt

This work takes a unique and humorous look at a city with story to tell. The Time Tram lands in Dundee! This new adventure book for kids of all ages is a hilarious romp through history. The City of Dundee, with an eventful and colourful past, which has had more than its fair share of cannibals and witches, has truly played its part in shaping Scotland. The Time Tram driver and conductor meet characters from the Mesolithic middens 8000 years ago, when Dundee was founded; Iron and Stone Age Dundonians; William Wallace, who struck his first blow for Scotland's freedom here; Mary Slessor, 19th century missionary, and even Desperate Dan from 'The Dandy', as of course, Dundee is home to DC Thomson, creators of the country's best loved comic characters, Dennis & Gnasher, Oor Wullie, The Broons and many more. Much has been written about Dundee, but never in this way and never before with young readers particularly in mind. Written by Matthew Fitt and illustrated by Keith Robson, this is a history book with a difference using a time travelling tram that takes the reader on an entertaining and fascinating journey. Time Tram Dundee is a book which will appeal to more than those with a connection to the city, as it is hugely interesting and entertaining book with lively, witty and wonderfully crafted illustrations throughout.
