    Terry Deary has made a brilliant, educational set of books! They teach you all about how the people of the past live! I would recommend an age range of 8-12 for this book

    I liked this book because I found out so much about the tudors. Do you know in tudor times peoole pooed into a bucket and threw it out the window! And in 1520 Henry viii and Francis i of france had a fight, and Francis tripped Henry up!Out of 10 i’d give it 9 because it was so intresting and I would certainay recamend it.

    I enjoyed this book because it doesn’t just tell you about the Tudors it tells you all about the crimes, and even Shakespeares plays, I will give it 10 out of 10, and would recommend it to a friend.
