3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By E. Kennen on April 2, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book covers one of the most serious subjects in the Magic Tree House Research Guide series - the often unpleasant and usually unfair lives of children during Charles Dickens' time. It does so with great care and and honesty.

This is not the type of book kids go wild about. There are a lot of (gently told) unpleasant truths in it. But it is an important reminder of the way things were, and how they have changed. I have not come across another kid's book about the lives of children in the Victorian Age, which makes this book all the more valuable.

While there is a lot of discussion about poverty, orphans, the imbalance between social classes, child labor, and even debtor's prison, the book isn't all serious. The characters of Jack and Annie insert humor where they can, and the discussions on transportation, toys, etc. are interesting.

I highly recommend this book.
