What was it like to visit a fair
when you would have ridden on a steam-powered roundabout, watched
a performing crocodile and won a bag of confetti at a hoopla
stall? The children in this book find out how fairground people
lived at the turn of the century. They discover that fairs today
contain many of the rides and stalls which their great
grandparents would have enjoyed. The book also includes background
information, old photographs and a timeline which shows important
events and inventions.

"The books is excellent. I had a
quick look though it when I received it on Saturday. It will be a
book I will read for years to come. Some of the pictures are of
rides I've either been on or seen. There is even an old ground map
for Nottingham Goose Fair which really surprised me.
"Overall it's one very good book that I'm very pleased to own."
