I read this book many years ago before I bought a NOOK. I intend to buy it for my NOOK soon. This book is a synopsis of all the Kings of England and a description of what happened in their reign. I was surprised to learn of all the foreigners who came to England over the centuries and took over for a time. Romans, Danes and Normans and others all came there and at times took command over much of the country. It is certainly worth reading for adults even though the title makes one think it is only for young readers.

Google books version of a defaced copy, withdrawn from the public library. Very poor text recognition, so that the text is garbled and unreadable.

No offense, but Charles Dickens is one of the most famous writers the world has known so far. If you think this book is boring, you most likely aren't intelligent enough to comprehend it. Do you even know why he's important? I advise you to Google him.
