5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Buying 21 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a really clear, comprehensive reference book on the kings and queens of England. As with all the Usborne books it is set out and illustrated in a way that makes it interesting for younger readers but the clarity of the content makes it a useful reference point for older readers too. As you would expect, it has a chronological format which really helps to put each monarchs reign (and each house) into context. Both my children (10 and 13) like this book and it has already proved useful for homework. If like me, your knowledge of the kings and queens of England is confined to a hazy recollection of a handful of monarchs then it also makes interesting reading; the fact that in adult terms it is simple and concise being a bonus as you can glean the necessary information in a short amount of time. For anyone with school-age children a useful reference book worth having.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best link through history. 12 Aug 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was interested in learning more about Henry I and his family tree,especially Maude/Matilda and so i bought this hoping to learn a little more.It is brilliant,it showed me how they were all linked,where they 'came from',and how they are connected all the way down to our royal family today.If you are interested in the line of royalties of Britain this is a great way to learn about them.
