?Peter Kent's brilliant cross-sections show how an early settlement changes into a bustling, modern-day city. The lively, warm and friendly illustrations are packed with absorbing and eye-opening details, and clearly show how new buildings are constructed on the rubble of the old. Eagle-eyed readers will have hours of fun spotting the descendants of one particular family though the centuries, and seeing how once-grand buildings become buried and how some structures remain through the centuries. Brand-new artworks and spreads reveal the prehistoric origins of the settlement, its 21st-century development and even give a glimpse into the far future, when ice sheets threaten to overwhelm the city.
*Author and illustrator Peter Kent has been producing books for children and adults for almost thirty years. His first book was a serious work of history: Fortifications of East Anglia, which is still in print today. He has written and illustrated nineteen children's books, and illustrated over one hundred and thirty other children's books. In fact, Peter thinks he has produced more than 12,000 individual artworks for his children's books. As well as working as an author/illustrator, Peter still manages to find time for some teaching and lecturing.
