“Great book”
I have boıght this book during my visit to the Queen’s House in Greenwich. No matter what age group this book is intended for, I had great pleasure in reading it as an adult. I have gained a good understanding of this specific period of British history. That the book provides information not only on the dynasties but also on the social life during the period covered is a big asset. Illustrations, rhetoric, overall desigm, and even the paper quality all contribute to a perfect reader experience, in my opinion. Thanks!
“Brilliant Book!!!”
This book is really brilliant. It would be really helpful if you are doing a project on the Tudors or Stuarts because it includes lots of information. This book might not be suitable for children under 7 years old.
“I love this book!!!!!!”
This book helped me when I was learning about the Tudors and I was the only person who knew about the tudors the most. It also helped me when we did a letter as Anne Boleyn. Thanks Usborne for being a historical pal!!!!!.
