Do you know which British queen ruled for 63 years? Who the first royal bookworm was? Which king brought lions and camels and polar bears (oh my!) to London? If you don't know much about the kings and queens of England, salvation is here! This regal entry in Kenneth C. Davis's Don't Know Much About series explores the amazing real lives (and some of the made-up stories) of two dozen of the most interesting members of the British monarchy over the last thousand years. In keeping with other titles in the popular series, Davis uses a lively question-and-answer format, along with illustrator S.D. Schindler's humorous artwork, to introduce readers to the sometimes bizarre world of royalty, right up to present day, when young prince and heir to the throne William wears an electronic tracking bracelet to keep him in constant contact with palace security (apparently Harry can run around untracked). A complete chronological listing of all the kings and queens of England concludes the book. (Ages 6 to 10) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
