Overview

Geraldine McCaughrean's best-loved novels all have an historical theme - her passion for history is evident in this collection of gripping short stories. Each of these five tales is set in the past at a moment of scientific or historical significance. Read about the book that changed the world and inspired Christopher Columbus and Da Vinci; why eleven days vanished from the English calendar in 1752 - and much more besides!

Author

Born in London, Geraldine worked in publishing for many years before marrying and turning to writing full-time. Since then she has published scores of outstanding books, including the Whitbread Award-winning A Little Lower Than the Angels and Gold Dust and A Pack of Lies, which won both the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize.
