After a foiled attempt to kill King James I in 1605, Guy Fawkes gained infamy in the United Kingdom. The failure of the Gunpowder Plot more than four hundred years ago led to the annual celebration of Guy Fawkes Day, when people celebrate around bonfires with community and family. Guy Fawkes Day offers a detailed look at the life of Guy Fawkes as well as the ways in which he is remembered. The book can also be used to teach students how to make inferences and draw conclusions as well as to identify prepositional phrases. The book and lesson are also available for levels S and Y.
