This fun little book is such a great idea. It's so easy to check facts about British monarchs and you don't have to read pages and pages of detail to find what you're looking for. It's so simple and easy, it makes you wonder why no one has written something like this before. Every history student should have one for quick research. And I should think there are lots of adults like me, who will love delving into it too.

I suspect a lot of my friends and family might be finding a copy of this book in their stocking! I have huge gaps in my knowledge when it comes to monarchs, and this has been a highly entertaining way to plug the holes! The cartoons are fun and the text is well written with facts that are interesting and easy to digest. I can well imagine my children using this as a handy reference for school work, too.
A facinating little book which is a very useful, and easy to read, introduction for children into the, very complicated, history of the British Monarchy. It should be a must for every grandparent looking for a stocking filer this Christmas.

Long ago under the withering gaze of my teacher I struggled through English history with a frown on my face. How a classy guide back then would have helped me to distinguish between one Henry and another.
Tony Boullemier's The Little Book of Monarchs does just that in an inimitable style with the aid of some catchy cartoons.
From front to back cover, the book is punchy yet precise and the author is not afraid to have fun with the facts. It's a page-turner for young and old wanting to swot up on their kings and queens and it would be a handy aid in the classroom. And just to make sure you're paying attention there's a test at the end.
The Little Book of Monarchs is a crowning achievement!
