I adored this book when I was a child, so much so that a lot of it got stuck in my memory. The book has a one page biography of each of England's reigning kings and queens since 1066. The biographies are in verse, and are highly memorable, as are the portraits that accompany each bio. Recently, when reading a book about Edward !!, a few lines began to tinkle in the back of my mind -- "Favours he lavished on/Pretty Piers Gaveston/ Giving him duchies and riches and rings". An internet search led me to this book, and how delighted I am to have found it again! A wonderful present for a young person with a passion for English history, or for an old person who was such in the long, long ago.

Wonderful book of childrens' poems, one for each English Monarch, from William the First, "the first of our kings, not counting the Ethelreds, Egberts and things" through "John, John, bad King John", "Edward the First was strong and tall, He had the longest legs of all", and "Bluff King Hal was full of beans; he married half a dozen queens; For three called Kate they cried the banns, One called Jane, and a couple of Annes" up to Queen Elizabeth II, with the last edition in 1953. There is a wonderful picture for each monarch, and the expense of reproducing those, by Rosalind Thornycroft, was said to be prohibitive for further editions. Somehow, the Great Wall Printing Co. Ltd has managed to come up with the new edition in 2011. Anyone who wants to teach his/her children about English History and her Kings and Queens is in for a treat if they can get a copy of this delightful and informative book.

One of my favorite books as a child and still useful. If you like English history this is an enjoyable and memorable way to learn about the rulers.

In witty, rhymed verse, this entertaining volume provides a smart overview of British history through portraits of its rulers.
Impossible not to be delighted!

A rediscovered treasure from my childhood. A wonderful book, beautifully and precisely recreated from the 1932 original in 2011.

FINALLY this wonderful book is back in publication....exactly as I remember it! Thank you. I wish it were even more available.,

The poems are longer and catchy. Some have to humorously stretch to find a rhyme, making them almost Seuss-like.

This book was revised in the 50's and goes from William I to Elizabeth II, making it current. Though, the poem about Queen Elizabeth is quite short and is more of an ending poem to the whole book.

From an American standpoint, I call this book a good supplement. Looking at each poem individually, it doesn't give quite enough information to fully make sense unless you have a decent background of the British Kings and Queens. If your child (or parents too) have an interest in British history, I recommend getting this book together with Our Island Story by H.E. Marshall or having online resources at the ready.
My parents used to read this to us over 60 years ago....... I have now passed copies to my cousins, children, grandchildren & friends that are teachers...... May they have as much fun as I did . Thanking you again
