this is the perfect book for someone wanting to learn about Queen Elizabeth I and doesn't know that much about her early life, up til the death of her father King Henry VIII. It explains the friction between Elizabeth and her sister "Bloody" Mary, as well some nice insight into the boyhood of the future King Edward VI and Lady Jane Grey.
It also belongs on the shelf of any anglophile.
Full of everyday facts of how life was during her life as a 11,12,13,to 14 year old girl. It keeps you so intrested you hate to walk away when you have to.
My child listens to this every night at bedtime. Falls to sleep to it. These books -- the entire series -- are such a fun way for girls to learn history!
This isn't what you would think it to be however, it is a very cute book to listen to. It provides you with a viewpoint of things that took place that you would not normally see from an adults view point. Either way if you like books from the Tudor timeline this is a good book.
Great book I loved how it felt as if Elizabeth had feelings and not just portrayed her as a figurehead. Elizabeth's diary made her seem more real. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who loves experiencing history through the eyes of an actual person
