The Thames has frozen solid forty times during recorded history. This lovely little book is a collection of forty vignettes based on events that actually happened during each of those times. Some tell of well-known historical personages, others of more common folk. It really was a fascinating glimpse of history, like taking a walk through time on the surface of the frozen river. The illustrations beautifully complement the text.
