Product description

Oxford – the romantic city of dreaming spires. Surely nothing remotely horrible could ever happen there? Well, think again, as Terry Deary takes you off on a terrifying city tour filled with potty professors, skeletons, corpses and nasty bits! Want to know: what a liripoop is? Which mad professor liked to walk like a dinosaur? What’s buried beneath the botanical gardens? Plot your path to the past with a frightful fold-out map of the city. Take a punt past corpse-ridden Christchurch. Go skeleton-spotting at the cruel and crumbling castle. With burning bishops, blood-soaked streets and student scraps galore, it’s a trip you simply daren’t miss!
