CHILDREN Avoid Being a Victorian Servant

by Fiona MacDonald
Illustrated by David Antram

This title can be used as a background approach to wider issues in Victorian times, such as class divides, daily life and the position of men and women in late nineteenth-century society. The humorous, cartoon-style illustrations make learning fun, and encourage young readers to engage with the central character. Informative captions, a comprehensive glossary and an index make this title an ideal and fun introduction to the conventions of non-fiction text. It is relevant to Key Stage 2 history and helps to achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14. Fiona Macdonald studied history at Cambridge University and at the University of East Anglia. She has taught in schools and colleges and has written numerous books for children. David Antram was born in Brighton in 1958. He studied at Eastbourne College of Art and then worked in advertising for 15 years before becoming a full-time artist. He has illustrated many children's non-fiction books.
