Two new FOUL & CHEESY history titles out this month…
For British Science Week, schools in Essex were up to all sorts and it was good to be back in the county visiting familiar secondary schools again. Plenty of primary schools joined us, too – for weird and wacky Animal Science.
Where sensational science and horrendous history meet:
Reviews at TOPPSTA: ‘Dalrymple and Cutpurse are petty criminals by day but by night their illegal activity takes a far nastier turn as they dig up fresh corpses to sell to doctors for medical research. A word of warning: some of the grisly descriptions of hanging and primitive medical experiments might be too much for squeamish readers. The story is told with brilliantly atmospheric historical details, giving the book a vivid sense of time and place. I also enjoyed the non-linear narrative; discovering Cephas’s story out of sequence added to the suspense’. (Sam’s Mommy)
