Gripping historical adventure set during the Great Fire of London. A young boy orphaned by the Plague learns to survive as a thief on the streets of London - until fire breaks out... London, 1666. Orphaned by the Great Plague, Sam is soon starving on the streets - and desperate enough to steal some bread. He's quickly recruited as one of sinister Uncle Jack's children, and taught to pick pockets. If he gets caught by the law, the punishment will be death - and if he crosses Uncle Jack, it could be just as bad. Still, it's a living for Sam and his fellow thief Catherine... until the long, hot London summer means a blaze at the Pudding Lane bakery runs out of control... and they learn that Uncle Jack's schemes are far more evil than they knew. Running for their lives from thiefmasters, thieftakers and the Great Fire of London itself, can two reluctant criminals save an innocent life - and their own skins?

The Great Fire of London is a hauntingly beautiful visual re-telling of one of the most well-known disasters in the city's history. To commemorate the 350th anniversary of the fire, powerful and sumptuous drawings from the new east London illustrator, James Weston Lewis, bring the events of November 1666 to life in this stunning gift book. Lewis's drawings take readers on a journey, from the single smouldering coal that falls out of the baker's oven to the swirling clouds of ash that engulf the city and then in to the very heart of the fire itself. As the pages turn, you can witness London burning to the ground and then rebuilding again. Children will love examining the rich detail of each spread, from the detailed city map to the drawings of London before, during and after the fire took hold. This book takes the dramatic historical information surrounding the Great Fire of London and transforms it into a breathtaking story that will transfix readers of all ages.
