Format: Paperback
Neither my daughter nor I could put this down. An absorbing and colorful account (and very quick read) which brings historical figures to life. I can't comment on the historical accuracy but it seems to provide a pretty good portrayal. I've never been good at history (the facts just don't stick for long) but when you learn about the person as a person and not as a set of facts it is like reading a novel. Or a soap opera! The stories are interjected with "newspaper articles," copies of letters and documents, and cartoons to illustrate topics or significant dialogue which is what first enticed my daughter to pick it up and start reading it.
A natural sequel is Mary and Her Hopeless Husbands, who led an even more dramatic life (the original Drama Queen?) than Elizabeth, and their stories are considerably intertwined.
I will continue to provide Dead Famous books for my kids as they are really enjoyable. I hope folks don't view these as dumbing down history, instead I like to think of them as an introduction to these figures that encourages further interest. I also like that the books are not concerned with being politically correct and don't candy-coat the more sensitive incidents, so parents may want to read these simply to be prepared for any questions that may come up.

If this book managed to get my math-minded, NOT-into-Tudor-History-at-all fiance into Elizabeth, I would reccomend it to anyone! This is a wonderful little book, pointing out all the interesting parts of Elizabeth's long reign, and sure to catch the eye of any child with a budding interest in British History.

The best way to study history. I learnt things I did not know, especially the fact that she had been in the Tower as a young woman.

HASH(0x8ee2c354) out of 5 stars Excellent! 25 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book had great information on Elizbeth I. Instead of just wordy texts, the author has had cartoons added as well to put the cherry on the cake. I recommend this book to people interested in history. I also encourage you to read Mary, Queen of Scots and her Hopeless Husbands in addition to this.
