A Ghost-light in the Attic
While helping to sort out old toys and other artifacts in the attic of a historic house, two youngsters are summoned back to the 17th century by Elinor, a young girl whose family lived in the house at that time.
Thrust into the midst of the English Civil War, the children must try and foil a plot to betray Elinor’s injured brother before the Parliamentarians discover him.
According to the publisher, the Flashbacks series are ‘dramatic stories set during key moments in history which bring the past to life’ and through a good story simply told, Pat Thomson certainly achieves this.
A glossary and additional historical notes are also given and make these books ideal to be read for fun or to support the National Curriculum.
