about

One of the world's greatest cities comes to life in this engaging little book. London: A Very Peculiar History™ takes a tour of iconic eras and landmarks, while also presenting lesser-known attractions and trivia. You'll find curious recipes for cockney delicacies, descriptions of  “lost buildings,” and lists of royal residences, famous markets, classic film scenes, and more. Humorous cartoon-style illustrations with amusing captions and speech bubbles round out this irresistible London visit.
Jim Pipe studied Ancient and Modern History at Oxford University and spent 10 years in publishing before becoming a full-time writer. He has written numerous nonfiction books for children, many on historical subjects. He lives in Dublin with his wife.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A surprisingly useful book! I bought this a few years ago before a trip to London- just something cheap to flip through on the flight, but it's so much more than just funny stories and trivia! It contains a lot of information about off the beaten-path type locations, historical tidbits and some fun things to check out if you're in London.
