Go back to the days when being a kid was no excuse for getting out of hard labour. Here are all the children whose work fed the British nation, kept trains running, and put clothes on everyone’s backs: jigger-turners, turnip-pickers, orderlies, steppers, matchbox-makers and more. With profiles and testimonies of real kids in rotten jobs, this book will tell you things you probably didn’t want to know about the back-breaking reality of being a child in the past.
