The Amazing Life of Mary, Queen of Scots: Fact-tastic Stories from Scotland's History (Paperback)

£6.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

She was Queen of Scotland and of France, and a possible Queen of England; she was involved in a series of mysterious deaths; in the end she lost her head... But what was life really like for Mary, Queen of Scots?

Put on your ruff and step into the sixteenth century for a unique glimpse into the dramatic life of the infamous queen. Mary's story is told from the perspective of her young servant Alec. Each easy-to-read chapter mixes the involving story of the queen's life with timelines, charts and revealing illustrations to create a Fact-tastic account that is both educational and emotionally engaging for younger readers.

Take a journey through time and find out:

-- Why did Mary become Queen of Scots when she was just six days old?

-- What exotic animals lived with the young queen?

-- How did Mary escape from Lochleven Castle?

-- Why did Mary's cousin, Queen Elizabeth I, arrange her beheading?

The Amazing Life of Mary, Queen of Scots continues the brilliant Fact-tastic series, which blends intriguing facts and fascinating fiction to bring the most exciting, gruesome and crucial moments of Scottish history alive for young readers.
