This book defiantly has great discription on queen elizabeth's life. it is sad that she had to get sent away because her dad didnt care for girls. he wanted a son. queen elizabeth's father beheaded some of his wifes and divorced some. the reason the king wanted a son was because he didnt think a woman could handle everything by himself

This book is defiantly has VERY good description. It even gives you lots of facts that where only in Elizabeth's time! Did you know that Elizabeth's father sent her away to a different castle when she was only three? Did you know that Elizabeth's sister, Mary was nicknamed bloody Mary because she beheaded so many people in her time? Did you know that Elizabeth's father beheaded, divorced and sentenced to death all the wives that he had? Did you know that Elizabeth's sister sent he to prison because she thought Elizabeth was trying to steal her throne? And Lastly, did you know that ring around o' roses is a song about a disease? Ring around o' roses is when you see the bumps forming on your skin. A pocket full of poses means there are flowers covering up the dead, decaying smell. Finally, Ashes Ashes we all fall down means...well...you're dead!!!

It seems that you would reccomend this book. Should I read it?
