About the book

Synopsis

ROLL UP! ROLL UP! READ ALL ABOUT IT!

Ladies and Gents, Sir Jack Dodger brings you a most excellent Guide to London!

Did you know . . . ?
If a Victorian couldn’t afford a sweep, they might drop a goose down their chimney to clean it!
A nobby lady’s unmentionables could weigh up to 40lbs!
Parliament had to be suspended during the Great Stink of 1858!

From the wretches of the rookeries to the fancy coves at Buckingham Palace, Dodger will show you every dirty inch of London.

Warning: Includes ’orrible murders, naughty ladies and plenty of geezers!

This fascinating guide to Victorian London is crammed with facts and figures, gossip and slang, and all presented in authentic typefaces and illustrated with original etchings. A sheer delight!

A very interesting and informative book.

Dodger’s Guide to London is clearly one for the young enquiring mind, who wishes to know more about the real Victorian London, as well as a little of Pratchett’s fictional one . . . the reader is almost guaranteed to come away with something they didn’t know before.
