About this title

Synopsis:

With only her long hair as a cloak, Lady Godiva takes her heroic ride through the English village of Coventry in exchange for her husband's promise to lower the people's taxes.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3-This retelling of the story of Lady Godiva unfolds initially like the original tale with the prince being a selfish and unfeeling ruler. He marries Godiva, a kind and selfless cobbler's daughter who is more concerned with the lives of the villagers than her own comfort. She asks her husband to lower the taxes so the villagers can have enough to buy proper food and clothing, and he jokingly tells her that the day this happens she will ride naked through the streets of Coventry. She accepts the challenge. Out of respect, the townspeople stay inside and close their shutters. Only one person looks out and he turns out to be the blind son of the tailor. In the original tale, the man looking out is blinded when he gazes upon the naked young woman. Her husband lowers the taxes and learns that kindness is more treasured than gold. The oil paintings are large, bold, and colorful. The facial expressions of the sullen prince are especially telling. It is not until the last page that a smile appears on his face. This is an excellent book for youngsters who may be unfamiliar with this tale. A concluding author's note puts the tale into historical perspective.
