Description
This book examines the incidents of body snatching and murder in Edinburgh in the nineteenth century, where criminals would commonly sell corpses to the medical community for dissection. This interactive series will enthrall young and reluctant readers (Ages 8-12) by making them part of the story, inviting them to become the main character. Each book uses humorous illustrations to depict the sometimes dark and horrific side of life during important eras in history.
