About this product
- Description<i>Britain in the Past</i> aims to give younger children an understanding of everyday life in Britain for both rich and poor through fact-filled text, exciting illustrations and photographs of artefacts and re-enactors. Feature boxes, maps and lists complete the picture. <i>Vikings</i> offers a look at life in Britain from 793 CE, when the first Viking attack took place. Viking customs, culture, warfare and everyday life are all investigated, as well the conflicts with existing Anglo-Saxon society in Britain.
- Author BiographyI have been writing for many years in a number of different genres, from books for babies up to books for 11 year-olds plus. I like to try new things and tackle new subjects, so I don't limit myself to one type of book. One month I might be writing about history, and the next month I might be creating an imaginary story. Examples of my work have been selected for national Key Stage study in the UK, and in the USA I was commended by the Library of Congress for my work in non-fiction, which they felt encouraged reluctant readers. I work with visuals always in mind, and love the challenge of getting across information or an exciting story with good graphics to back it up. Lately I have been blogging about the craft of writing, and I've also appeared at National Book Festivals, which I think of as the most challenging thing of all to do! I get a lot of emails from children around the world, inspired by one of my books they have read, and that gives me great pleasure.
