Today’s children get a very bad press but they are not the first generation to behave badly! And the punishments have been far, far worse! Bad Kids charts the history of how unruly children have been dealt with through the ages and most of all it will make any child very glad to be growing up today!

Synopsis

Bad Kids: The Worst Behaved Children in History by Tony Robinson

So you're standing outside the Head's office, waiting to be told off for breaking a classroom window. You've got sweaty palms and a serious sinking feeling in your stomach. Do you think no one's ever had a life as bad as you? Well, you're wrong. Kids in the past have had to suffer much worse punishments than a lecture about how they've let the whole school down. For instance however angry your Head gets, it's fairly certain that she's not going to put you in a pillory and nail your ears to it. All through history, children have been getting into some serious scrapes. And they didn't often get off lightly. Tony Robinson takes you on a guided tour through the lives of outlaw children from history, their dastardly crimes and awful punishments.
