The ravens of the Tower of London bring its fascinating history to life, telling tales of gore, guts and great escapes.

The book is illustrated throughout and packed with fascinating and funny stories that the Yeoman Warders would rather be kept secret from visitors, such as a daring attempt to steal the Crown Jewels, the polar bear who once lived in the Tower and the prisoner who tried to escape through his toilet.

A gripping history of the Tower of London narrated by the Tower of London ravens and lavishly illustrated with humorous cartoon style illustrations. Legend has it that if the six ravens ever leave the Tower of London, the Tower and the kingdom will fall, so Charles II decreed that there must always be at least six birds kept here to protect the Tower.
