The Tudor era springs to life in Marcia Williams's lively account, written and illustrated in her signature comic-book style.

Travel back to Tudor times with Arthur Inkblott, Queen Elizabeth I's favorite scribe, and his pet ferret, Smudge, who lives (and offers commentary) in the margins of the book. Meet the handsome and headstrong Henry VIII and his six wives, as well as the clever and beautiful Elizabeth I, who politely refused entreaties to marry. Fight the Spanish Armada, sail across the Atlantic with Christopher Columbus, and spend time with the Tudor common folk, who offer their own take on what life was like in these times. Packed with jokes, colorful illustrations, and fascinating facts, this informative and entertaining comic-strip history showcases the work of Marcia Williams at her very best.

Fun book for learning interesting tidbits about King Henry VIII and his family. My 7th grader and 5th grader frequently pick it up to read a couple of pages whenever they have a few free minutes.
