As if the plague wasn't bad enough, here comes the fiery antidote! As famous diary-keeper Samuel Pepys, you'll witness four days and four nights of fire and live to tell the tale. Find out how people lived in the London of 1666, how they coped in the aftermath and all importantly, whodunnit! - or at least who we think dunnit! "You Wouldn't Want To Be" is a constantly-growing library of exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history. The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived. Humorous cartoon-style illustrations bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events.

5 stars
What a fabulous book! I bought this book as my son is looking at the great fire of London in school next term. He was totally engrossed, I read a lot of the book to him as he still prefers to listen to me read but he read some himself. We read the book over two days. The illustrations in the books are brilliant and detailed. The book is written in the first person so it feels as though your actually there, my son really liked that it was written like this. The information captions are to the point and easily digestible. We've discovered there are now a few stories in the "you wouldn't want to" book collection so we are looking forward to getting those! I would recommend this for children 5+
