I bought this for my 8yo daughter but I think it might be a couple of years until she will enjoy. The women in our family have a somewhat fascination with the Tudor era so I figured I may as well start her early :)
The book is a diary format and was an interesting look at life during the turmoil of the years following Catherine's arrival in England. There was a lot of political information which, while interesting, took away somewhat from the fact this was a diary of a lady-in-waiting. I think I...more

This book is one in the My Story series. The books in this series are fictional diaries of young girls living during different periods of British, Scottish, and Irish history.

Sixteen-year-old Eva De Puebla comes to England in 1581 as lady in waiting to Catherine of Aragon, the Spanish princess who is to marry Prince Arthur, heir to the throne of England. Eva has been chosen to accompany Catherine because she is her close childhood friend. But as the years go by, although the girls remain friend...more

I really liked this book! It's about Catherine Of Aragon's earlier years before she got divorced and was stripped of her title. The persons who's diary it is is Catherine's childhood friend Eva who is also Spanish. Eva and Catherine are so loyal to each other even though Catherine is a princess and it shows in the book. By all means go ahead and read it!

Alison Prince has done a really good job with this book. The story is well written and captures life in Tudor times well. The images and timelines featured after the diary enhance the educational benefits too. Any young person who is finding history boring should grap a copy of the My Story diaries and may be plesantly suprised.

In this historical fiction book called Catherine of Aragon, it tells the story of a young sixteen-year-old girl from Spain who was supposed to end up marrying Prince Arthur of England-son of King Henry VII of Henry but instead, the ‘sweating sickness’ gives this royal fairytale a twist when one of them ends up dying. Will Catherine’s life end up well? Read and find out.
This book was actually a bit ruined for me since it’s part of a ‘series’ in a way and since I’ve already read a lot of other bo...more

This entire series is a wonderful way to learn history or teach it to adolescents. I find today's generations seem to recall more when they learn through other people (pop songs, celebrity gossip, etc.), so what better way to teach history than through someone else's perspective? Yes, "authentic" diaries would be "better", but would the language really hold the modern student's attention? Did the diary writer know what WOULD be important in the context of history? Probably not.

I really enjoyed this book. I can't remember all that happened in the story because I read it four years ago. Practically a girl is really good friends with Catherine of Arogan and they are on their way to England from Spain because Arthur the older brother of Henry VIII is getting married to Catherine but then things go wrong for Cathrine but things go well too for the girl who tells the story.

I'd have liked to read this when I was a child. It is both detailed and accurate, and tells this part of the Tudor story in plain and simple terms. It is well written, and very good for kids. Unfortunately I feel it lacks entertainment value, which is why I feel that it's just okay. I'd have liked a little embellishment to bring the story to life.
Emma
I enjoyed this book as I am very interested in the Tudor period.
It was a quick and easy read as I think this book is geared towards children.

I only gave this book 3 stars because although it was enjoyable it wasn't amazing and it didn't teach me anything new about the Tudor period.
