Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Josephine Bailey reads with a haughty confidence. Her well-enunciated accent sounds royal as she mixes palace intrigue with preteen concerns of school and friends. AudioFile
“Elizabeth, the daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, shares her day-to-day life from the ages of 11 to 14.…History is conveyed, accurately for the most part, in an entertaining fashion. Narrator Josephine Bailey’s light British accent is perfect for a young Elizabeth’s first person point-of-view set in diary format.” School Library Journal
