Grade 8 Up–This overview of the monarch's life and times illuminates both the woman herself and the era in which she ruled. The book opens with a time line of Elizabeth's life and concurrent events in world history; its succinct text and colorful artwork set the stage for Lace's treatment of the legacies of the Elizabethan era. Chapters focus on key areas of Elizabeth's reign, including the makeup of the royal court, the Church of England, and the exploration of the New World. There are also chapters on city life, recreation, and science during the 1500s. Information on important figures such as Mary, Queen of Scots; William Shakespeare; and Sir John Hawkins is incorporated into the narrative. Tempting section headings (Endless Flirtations, Blood Sports) break up the text, and spicy details hold readers' interest. Abundant full-color photos and reproductions support the text, and well-documented primary-source sidebars enhance chapter content. An annotated further-reading section directs researchers to books and Web sites, including several scholarly works. This title rounds out the information available in Paul Hilliam's Elizabeth I: Queen of England's Golden Age (Rosen, 2004) for its accessible and appealing presentation of a hugely influential leader.–Amy Pickett, Ridley High School, Folsom, PA
