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. 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 let 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. ( )
