Description

Sewing binding for longer life, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of binding. Vlad and Boxton travel through the burning streets of London, watching the houses being destroyed and passing Samuel Pepys as he buries his most precious possessions. The dramatic story accompanied by striking print-block illustrations will captivate readers of all ages. James Weston Lewis’s bold stylised illustrations paint a vivid picture – golds, yellow, oranges and blues, with flickering flames and pattern-like shapes silhouetted against the glow of the fire. This truly engaging read would be an asset to any library, classroom or bookshelf and will undoubtedly delight any reader, young or old.
