Victorian values can be satirised as putting a child in a top hat and thrashing it before stuffing it up a chimney. But the fact remains that the Victorians are closer to us than we might like to admit: for good or ill, they laid the foundations of the modern world; many of their achievements are breath-taking; and the most famous Victorians are still household names. Six short biographies, written in a novelistic and engaging style, introduce children to determined Victorian trailblazers, including Queen Victoria.
