Synopsis

Queen Elizabeth I by Richard Brassey

She said she'd rather die than marry; she had terrible toothache from eating too many sweets; she consulted a wizard before making big decisions; she drank beer for breakfast and astonished onlookers with her energetic dancing. This is a dazzling little pictorial biography, crammed with fascinating information.

Reviews

'The combination of direct text and extra cartoon-strip action provides a perfect vehicle for the high-quality information that is packed within the pages of these attractive and unpretentious books. The humour is never overdone, intrusive or gratuitous, and all the elements of art, design and text combine effortlessly to provide an accessible and memorable introduction to these important people from our history, simultaneously providing a rich social context.'
