Editorial Reviews

VOYA
AGERANGE: Ages 12 to 15.

This four-volume series covers aspects of life during Elizabethan England by focusing on people, from the noble to the common, and how they lived their lives. Elizabeth and Her Court takes a look at those near to the Queen by including illustrations and excerpts from her closest advisors and enemies. The author mentions several times that Elizabeth had a temper that would flair up, "usually, however, the objects of her anger were soon back in her good graces, unless they had committed a truly serious offense." A chapter toward the end of the book, "Celebrations and Spectacles," contains several pages of information on Elizabeth's coronation, which although fitting for this chapter, seemed a bit out of place in the overall organization of the book. The books in this series have a good mix of narration by the author and direct quotes, letters, and excerpts from the lives of those who lived during the Elizabethan period. The declaration that "there were no radios, CD players, or iPods," is misplaced as other comparisons with current life are not made throughout the books. Other titles include The Countryside, The Church and The City. Reviewer: Kelly Czarnecki

Children's Literature - Jennifer Lehmann
Part of the "Life in Elizabethan England" series, this title intertwines details of Queen Elizabeth's life with descriptions of life at court. While the biographical portions are brief, the connections between her life and her rule are clearly made. After watching Henry VIII's relationships with his wives, including her own mother, Elizabeth determines to remain unmarried. Her Protestantism also affects the nation, bringing an end to the religious persecution under Mary, but isolating England from the Catholic nations in Europe. Other historical figures of the time are given biographical note as well, including Sir Francis Drake, Sir Philip Sidney, and significant members of her court. Artwork from the time period illustrates the text, and pieces of poetry, literature, and correspondence add the voices of Elizabeth's contemporaries to the explanations. The combination of primary sources and the author's narrative make the book both historically relevant and accessible. Descriptions of celebrations, palaces, the lives of children, and sanitation problems complete the picture of life at court. While each title in the series can stand alone, this provides a solid introduction to the time period. Additional features include a glossary, suggestions for further reading and online information, a bibliography and an index. Reviewer: Jennifer Lehmann
School Library Journal

Gr 6-8- These books concentrate on different aspects of life in Elizabethan England, using some common information about eating, sleeping, sanitation, and roles of men and women that would clarify many questions in that particular title. Good-quality, full-color reproductions help readers envision the people's homes, clothing, and lifestyles. The attractive, open format and the engaging presentation of the subject matter, combined with documented primary-source quotations and sidebars that include recipes, poetry, plays, and additional information, will appeal to both researchers and those who are just interested in learning more about this period.-Karen Scott, Thompson Middle School, Alabaster, AL
