Synopsis

The Secret Life of Elizabeth I by Bob Fowke

If people think the past is dull they haven't seen this book yet. It's witty, anarchic, full of cartoons and jokes. And amidst the fun there are loads of interesting facts about the life and times of Elizabethans. History has never been such a laugh. Did you know: The mane and tail of Elizabeth's horse was dyed orange to match her wig; Elizabeth had one of the world's first flushing toilet. She had her own team of bears for bear-baiting. Her teeth were black from eating too much sugar. Read this book and find out more about the secret life of Elizabeth.

Reviews

provides a way in for less confident readers and whets the appetite of history-phobes.

'These bright and breezy books are packed with quirky facts and information. They work equally well as books for dipping into at random or as accessible end-to-end reads.'
