Synopsis

Did you know?

A new species of cat-like dinosaur, yet to be named, was discovered on the Isle of Wight in 1988

Darwin began his world famous `On the Origin of the Species' while staying at the Kings Head Hotel

There are 21 tourists to every Island resident

The Little Book of the Isle of Wight is a funny, fact-packed compendium of the sort of frivolous, fantastic or simply strange information which no one will want to be without. The Island's most eccentric inhabitants, blood-curdling murders and literally hundreds of facts combine to make this required reading for locals and visitors alike. Illustrated with humorous cartoons and delivered with wit and flair, this captivating compendium is almost impossible to put down.

JAN TOMS is descended from a long line Islanders. To date she has had eleven novels published under the name of Janet Mary Tomson; the latest, The Cruellest Month, will be published this month by Robert Hale. With two or three exceptions, these books have been historical in content and often set on the Isle of Wight. Jan is addicted to history and research, and writes regular historical features for the bi-monthly magazine Island Life and has produced more than fifty articles for the online magazine Suite 101, some with an Island connection. She lives in Freshwater.
