    This book was very useful in our school (St Wilfrids Ashton in Makerfield) as our Y6 topic last year was Victorians. They engage children perfectly and we are lucky to have a few books by these authors.

    This was the first of the “That was ” books and the first of many which I bought for my grandchildren and for Christmas presents for children on my Christmas list. They are very exciting and enjoyable for children who love the magic of Miranda They are also educational because of the adventures the children have in different times and places. I have enjoyed reading these books with my grandchildren and would recomend them as lovely presents.
