cover image

A & C Black, 2013. ISBN 9781408181720.
(Age: 10+) Highly recommended. Fancy a job as a spit boy or an odour judge? No I hear you say! Well, these jobs might not be around anymore but we can still read about them and screw up our noses at the 'yuckiness'! World's worst jobs is packed with details about a variety of jobs from the past. Readers will see how hard it was to make leather and what you had to do if your job was to clean up after the King went to the toilet!
Author Tracey Turner has created a humorous information text with funny illustrations that will engage reluctant readers. It is highly recommended for boys aged 10+. After all, who doesn't like reading about gross stuff!
