What an enjoyable read this book was. If you are a history buff, you will certainly enjoy this one. A great book to give to a teen or adult friend. It was so fun to follow the lives of the 'Bottom Five' through World War I and become more aware of the historical events in England at this time in history.
A great story, author did his home work on facts and mixed them well into the story line. A must read for all ages.
A well written story, full of English humor and adventure. A must read for young men and women as well as the rest of us. It is easy to forget that in the end friendships bring us through. The author really did his homework on historical fact and it was clever on how these facts were mixed in the story line. I've checked, the Royals did have a German surname.
Pick a day when you can read this in one sitting. Tough to put down. The story keeps you wanting to read one more page, one more chapter. Can't wait for the movie!! When is the next one, Benson??
