I really liked this book. I believe the book was meant for children but there is no way I'd let a child read a book about the Tudors! This is definitely more geared towards middle to high school age. The author explains in great detail about someone I hadn't really studied, Bloody Mary. We learn that Mary Tudor's vicious nickname wasn't quite as deserving as once thought and what a trying life she had.

Couldn't put the book down!
