The Great Fire of London: Anniversary Edition

by Emma Adams & James Weston Lewis illustrator

In 1666, London’s citizens woke to see the skyline above their city’s cramped wooden houses ablaze. Illustrated by James Weston Lewis, the events of November 1666 come to life, from the single smouldering coal that falls out of the baker’s oven to the swirling clouds of ash that engulfed the city. As the pages turn, pupils witness London burning to the ground and then rebuilding.
