From Booklist:

This vibrantly colored, informative graphic novel from the Stories from History series offers a glimpse into Elizabeth I's reign during her tribulations with the Spanish empire. The book introduces the historical figures with a pictorial cast page, then progresses chronologically from Elizabeth's rise to the throne to the battles between the English fleet and the Spanish Armada. The artwork, with plenty of dramatic battle action, is in full color, and the panels are used to describe specific settings and historical facts. Maps showing the course of the fleets and where the battles took place are scattered through the text, as are "fast facts" segments that provide more historical details A time line of Elizabeth's life, a "Did You Know?" page of information, and a glossary will help young minds comprehend the history. There is an unfortunate typo in one panel, and some word balloon placements are disjointed, but this will still be a good purchase for libraries searching for new ways to present history.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5–8—This history of how Elizabeth I came to power skims over the conflict in England between Protestants and Catholics and jumps to the Spanish Armada. Those reading this book with little or no background knowledge will only get a superficial introduction to the period. The illustrations are of fair quality. The vivid colorization doesn't mute difficult scenes like the burning of Protestants at the stake, but it will keep readers turning the pages.—Esther Keller, I.S. 278, Brooklyn, NY
