Book Review Elizabeth I: Red Rose of the House of Tudor

By Kathryn Lasky
Narrated by Josephine Bailey
Publishers's Summary
Welcome to the bizarre court of Henry VIII, where even a princess fears losing her head like her mother. Elizabeth hides her tenacious personality from everyone, especially her father. Your 21st-century kid will enjoy Elizabeth's "treasonous thoughts" and glimpse the daily life of a young woman who ascended the throne at 25 and went on to rule her country for 45 years.
I bought this on Audible.Com. It is for children but this 64yo enjoyed it a lot. It is about her childhood and her relationships with those around her. Check it's OK if you want to "get it for your child" and then listen to it with them. My inner child has listened to it more than once!

Oh, you will appreciate the narrator who does a great job!

Hi:) I have this one, but not in audio. And I am in fact planning to read it with my daughter. (Did you know she now posts mini reviews on my site? It's great!) Glad you enjoyed it- I think we will too. Thanks for the review. Have a great day:)
