Good Beginner British History

by Cynthia M on Nov 4, 2010

This book gives a nice beginners history of Britian. It is written in prose form; a series of short stories, which makes it interesting and readable. It is written to children, but is an enjoyable read for an adult, too.

This is an excellent children's book on the history of England. It begins with the legend of Albion and ends with the reign of Queen Victoria. The author freely mixes facts and legends. She says that even though learned historians will say they are only myths the stories are there and should be told. Some such stories are the story of Albion, the story of Brutus, how the Giant's Dance came to England, and many others. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
