Product description

Queen Victoria was the ultimate Victorian, and she was not amused. Luckily YOU will be splitting your sides as you discover how disgusting the Victorians really were. They may have looked all prim and proper, but they were a jolly naughty bunch. Lots of Victorians could be vicious and violent and villainous – VILE, in fact. So read on to see…

  • When the first public loo was flushed
  • What terrible tricks Victorian urchins played on posh people
  • Who had a gruesome glass eye for every occasion
  • How some Victorians made money from dead bodies
  • The gory and gruesome ways that Victorians died
  • The nasty things Victorians did to children

Plus you can discover the vile names Victorian kids were called, taste some rotten Victorian recipes and try out some terrible tests. History has never been so horrible!

    Terry Deary has made a brilliant, educational set of books! They teach you all about how the people of the past live! I would recommend an age range of 8-12 for this book

    I enjoyed this, it told me lots about history. I think the book should not have so many drawings but other than that great.

    This is obviously a non fiction book and does it’s job very well as it is crammed with information about the Victorians. It is presented in a funny and interesting style – like all the other horrible history books – with good and relevant pictures and diagrams. The Victorian era was obviously huge and all though the book does cover a huge amount it doesn’t cover everything. However as as a history book for children it is very good. I would recommend this for children aged 9+
