Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
During 229 turbulent and dramatic years from the 15th to the 18th century, the Tudors and Stuarts reigned in Britain. It was a time of great change in so many areas—religion, government power, science, the arts. There were plots and spies, world exploration and conquest, witches, pirates, plague and disastrous fire, child rulers and virgin queens—historical fact that has inspired so many novels and works of nonfiction. This small book does an excellent job of concisely describing the historical significance and influence of the Tudors and Stuarts and the drama that unfolded during their life and times. It begins with a family tree, an overview of the Tudors and Stuarts, and the story of how Henry Tudor, Henry VII, won the throne as the War of the Roses ended. Possibly Henry VII's most notable achievements were fathering the flamboyant ruler, Henry VIII, and Margaret Tudor, who was grandmother to James Stuart, James I of England. The book ends with the death of Queen Anne, Henry VII's great-great-great-great-granddaughter and the last of the Stuarts. The story, presented chronologically, has dates at the top of pertinent pages to help the reader put together a mental time line. The text is well-illustrated with photos, artwork, maps, flags and charts to add vividness to the clear and readable text. "Did you know?" boxes at the bottom of many pages add fascinating bits of information. The book contains links to websites that will complement its material and has an index. 2003, Usborne Publishing Ltd, Ages 9 up.
