Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this on a whim as I'd told my 5yo the story of Battle Of Hastings. Thought it might be a bit dry consdering the front cover and a terrible example of the 'Look Inside' function.
It covers the story from Edward on his deathbed, confusion over succession, the battles at Stamford and Hastings and a quick aftermath.
No mention of the arrow in the eye but uses the lance and 'hacked-up' version which, afaik, is pretty recent account.
The illustrations are not great art in themselves but fit superbly with the storytelling.
There are a few other books in the range that we're considering. A well told story covering historical fact is always a bonus to get kids interested in a subject.
