Series: Picture books for libraries
By Ruth Brocklehurst
Step inside an elegant Victorian townhouse with this fascinating picture book. Each page shows a different area of the house, including the library, the butler’s pantry, the school room and the conservatory. With information on Victorian times, contents and index pages for easy reference and links to websites with tours of real Victorian houses.
When she wasn’t out riding her bike or making things out of loo rolls and scraps of fabric, Ruth Brocklehurst spent much of her childhood reading – especially historical novels and whodunits. Since joining Usborne in 2000, she has written and edited countless books on everything from craft activities and history, to creative writing, space exploration and dinosaurs. If she could go back in time she’d like to meet Mary Queen of Scots.
Visit Usborne Quicklinks for links to carefully selected websites where you can take a virtual tour of a Victorian home, examine everyday objects and find out more about Queen Victoria and life in Victorian times.
