Synopsis

Cordelia's Pig Day by Elizabeth Byrne Hill

When Cordelia goes to stay with her grandmother and grandfather within the Royal family at Caer, she has no idea of the big changes ahead. On his 100th birthday great-grandfather King Rud Hud Hudibras declares that he no longer wants to be King and passes the honour onto his son, Cordelia's grandfather.

Reviews

Cordelia is a curious, sunny-natured child, enjoying life with her family over two thousand years ago. She loves to stay with her grandparents and listen to Nain's tales about the family, and, after hearing the story of how some clever pigs helped her grandfather, what she wants more than anything is a pig of her own. But Cordelia is also a princess who, in the course of a year and a day, sees great and sudden changes in her family as the royal crown is passed down from her great-grandfather to her grandfather to her dreamy, star-gazing father. The author has given an inventive and humorous twist to the story of the legendary kings of Britain: the one-hundred-year-old Rud Hud Hudibras, his son Bladud, who founded the city of Bath after discovering the magical properties of its hot springs, and Bladud's son, Lear, who, together with his daughters Cordelia, Regan and Goneril, has been immortalised by William Shakespeare.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
