Everybody has an idea of kings and queens but who were they really? when did they eat for breakfast? What were their everyday lives like? The Hutchinson Book of Kings and Queens puts history into perspective by rooting these colourful monarchs firmly in the mind with their stories and sense of the age in which they llived. The entire succession from Egbert onwards will be represented with the greats being featured in two double spreads. Family tree endpapers and fun rhymes help the reader remember dates. A brief and totally accessible text, coupled with illustrations by the country's most inventive illustrators, will be firmly rooted in fact but touched with a good deal of humour and the sort of trivia that children delight in.
