Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the bizarre court of Henry VIII, where even a princess fears losing her head like her mother. Elizabeth hides her tenacious personality from everyone, especially her father. Your 21st-century kid will enjoy Elizabeth's "treasonous thoughts" and glimpse the daily life of a young woman who ascended the throne at 25 and went on to rule her country for 45 years.

a wonderful biography

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.

Lovely

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!

Cute

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.

Elizabeth 1

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
