Major Glad, Major Dizzy

Major Glad, Major Dizzy is a photographic picture storybook designed for children aged 5 – 10 years. It’s based on the true discovery of a hidden hoard of Victorian toys under the author’s floor. It will introduce some of the milestones of recent British history and hopefully interest children in tracing the past through found objects and old photographs. It’s also funny and poignant in parts.

Our Review Panel says...

This unusual and original book is a photographic picture story that compares old and new houses. The story follows two Victorian toy soldiers that were hidden beneath the floorboards of a house in 1870. When the pair are discovered 140 years later they are surprised to see just how much the house has changed.
