Informazioni sul prodotto
Descrizione del prodotto
This is probably the most concise English history book ever published. Tony Boullemier has vividly summed up all 42 rulers of England since 1066. Each reign is condensed into five key bullet points and illustrated by a clever cartoon that sticks in the memory. It sorts out all those Edwards Henrys and Georges - their major battles the rebellions they faced and the bizarre ways many of them died. For younger readers aged 10 upwards The Little Book of Monarchs will provide a chronological narrative giving a firm foundation for future history studies. For students and older readers it will be an indispensable reference book - a short and snappy aide memoire to our bloody and glorious past. For everyone it's history with a smile on its face
Tony wrote this book as a response to the falling standards of history teaching in schools - he feels that less and less time is devoted to the subject and that children are often offered only two or three significant periods to study. He feels they are simply not getting a proper perspective and hopes to address this by taking the reader chronologically through the ages.
