    1. Gillian Clements studied Illustration under Raymond Briggs at Brighton Polytechnic.

    2. This is a short and concise book telling the events of the London Fire in 1666. There are a lot of illustrations, some rather humorous. The text is interesting and easy to understand. Much of the information is taken from Samuel Pepys' diary which was fun because we've come across him several times already. A quick read for the elementary or middle school crew.

    3. A good, concise but interesting book. Nicely illustrated throughout. Ideal for teaching The Great Fire of London to primary school children.
