Review:

"Elizabeth I and the culture of her time come alive in these well-written titles... These titles touch on topics students will want to know about, including romance, dastardly deals, clothing, eating, and hygiene (or lack thereof), and give facts that will amuse them, such as the particularly descriptive Elizabethan naming of colors. Average-quality, black-and-white reproductions, photographs, and a simple map appear in each volume. Fine examples of history books that are both substantial and entertaining."
-- School Library Journal (August 2003) (School Library Journal 20030801)

"While Lace describes ornate formal gardens, costly wardrobes, and other obsessions of the wealthy, Stewart focuses on the often gritty details of daily life in London. In Sources, selected excerpts from Elizabethan documents and first-person accounts capture the tone of the times."
--School Library Journal (Spring 2004) (School Library Journal 20040401)

"...contains excerpts from original documents concerning daily life, entertainment, politics, and Elizabeth I...the excerpts have been arranged in such a way that they will not intimidate students."
--School Library Journal (April 2004) (School Library Journal 20040401)
