Year 6: Sky Ship and Other Stories

Description

Geraldine McCaughrean's best-loved novels all have an historical theme - her passion for history is evident in this collection of gripping short stories. Each of these five tales is set in the past at a moment of scientific or historical significance. Read about the book that changed the world and inspired Christopher Columbus and Da Vinci; why eleven days vanished from the English calendar in 1752 - and much more besides!
