This is probably the most concise English history book ever published. Tony Boullemier has vividly summed up all 42 rulers of England since 1066. Each reign is condensed into five key bullet points and illustrated by a clever cartoon that sticks in the memory. It sorts out all those Edwards, Henrys and Georges - their major battles, the rebellions they faced and the bizarre ways many of them died. For younger readers, aged 10 upwards, The Little Book of Monarchs will provide a chronological narrative, giving a firm foundation for future history studies. For students and older readers, it will be an indispensable reference book - a short and snappy aide memoire to our bloody and glorious past. For everyone, it's history with a smile on its face! Tony wrote this book as a response to the falling standards of history teaching in schools - he feels that less and less time is devoted to the subject and that children are often offered only two or three significant periods to study. He feels they are simply not getting a proper perspective, and hopes to address this by taking the reader chronologically through the ages.

About the Author:

Tony Boullemier was born in Newcastle in 1945 and trained there as a journalist before joining the Daily Express in 1969. He started his own newspaper group in Northampton in 1975 and sold it to an international publisher in 1988. Married with two children, he lives in Northamptonshire. This is his second book; he published Leonie and the Last Napoleon with Matador in 2010.

Review:

"A wonderfully accurate and fascinating little guide to English Monarchs. Pithy, precise and lively" -- Suzannah Lipscomb "Clarifies all those rollicking monarchs from the Normans to the present day" -- Chet Chebegia "Amusing and quirky, it provides the chronological sweep of history children often lack" -- Elwyn Lewis "Original, educational and entertaining - all the history you thought you knew and some you didn't" -- David Baldwin
