The Lovereading4Kids comment

Sian Busby brings history to life through fiction in this terrific recreation of one of the great women in history – Boudicca. Through an imaginative retelling this is a really fun way to find out about the life and times of long ago. A real page-turner.

Synopsis

Boudicca by Sian Busby

A page-turner imagined from historical accounts of 'The Warrior Queen'. Boudicca lives a contented life as Queen of Icenia - though the Romans are never far away. When the new Emperor Nero decides to seize Icenia and finally bring it under Roman control, Boudicca is forced to stand up and defend her people. Fearless and resolute, Boudicca gathers forces and prepares to fight. For her, slavery to Rome is not an option, even if this means bloodshed and almost inevitable death...
