You're invited to 51 Orchard Mansions, a lavish home in the year 1888. Open this die-cut book to meet the wealthy family that owned this extraordinary house and see how life was lived back in the Victorian era. Go upstairs and downstairs and through its many rooms, from the nursery where the children play to the kitchen where servants prepare the dinner. Lift the flaps to look behind doors, peer inside drawers, and find hidden treasures. Plus, you'll get a full plan of the house, press-out characters to play with, and fun facts—like why most Victorians bathed only once a week and why it took three hours to clean the drawing room!
