Bonnie Prince Charlie and All That by Allan Burnett


Bonnie Prince Charlie and All That by Allan Burnett

Bonnie Prince Charlie And All That is a real-life adventure packed with historical facts about Britain's royal rebel. Join the dashing Prince on a dangerous mission to win back his three kingdoms from the horrible Hanoverians. Scramble ashore in the Scottish Highlands and find out how Charlie uses his funny wig and fancy French accent to convince the warlike clans to follow him. Gallop into action as the Prince's fierce Jacobite soldiers skewer his enemies and capture their castles. Find out where things start going wrong - and decide what to do if you were Charlie. Learn how dressing up like a girl helps the Prince avoid being turned into sausages by Butcher Cumberland. Smell the crackling gunpowder as Charlie and his clans charge into a showdown with their foes at the battle of Culloden - and find out what happens after the guns fall silent. Stuffed with superb illustrations, this brilliant book will have you bounding through the heather on an exciting escapade!
