9780142400975: The Queen's Progress

Join Queen Elizabeth I on her annual summer procession through the English countryside in this majestically illustrated alphabet. With an A for Adventure, the queen leaves London for an extraordinary holiday among her people. Feast on blackbird pie, join the royal hunting party, and cheer on your favorite knights as they joust for the queen's favor. But watch out! T is for Treason. Traitors trail in the queen's path and it's up to her bravest and most loyal subjects to keep her from harm! Playful, rhyming verse, fascinating notes about each topic, and lavishly detailed pictures make this delightful romp through Elizabethan England a pleasure to read again and again.

About the Author:

This is Celeste Davidson Mannis's second book for Viking.

Bagram Ibatoulline is also the illustrator of Signs for Sale.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-7-Set against the backdrop of the queen's annual "royal progress," this sumptuous picture book details the common occurrences that the monarch, her courtiers, and servants faced each summer as they roamed the English countryside-a time of relaxation for the queen but one of constant vigilance for her staff. Each letter of the alphabet gives a tidbit of information through a four-line rhyme, expounded on in an accompanying paragraph of prose text. While rhymes for two of the letters are quite forced, most are well penned. Some are light and fanciful, while others have a more serious tone. Unfamiliar vocabulary may challenge some students ("turncoats," "bevy," "gambols"), but the narrative is so interesting that they are not likely to be deterred by it. Ibatoulline's acrylic paintings are superb in their elegance and fascinating in their detail. Elizabeth's ornate gowns and her courtly accoutrements are delightfully offset by her servants' plain garb and earnest expressions, and there are many humorous touches. Large letters are rendered in fancy script and decorated in a gold scroll motif. This book could be used as an introduction to Elizabethan history, or it could serve as a model for creating alphabet books based on historical time periods. A plus for any collection.
