MEDIA REVIEWS

Marcia Williams is a pioneer of the jokey, cartoony approach to history with her comic-strip narrative and tongue-in-cheek asides […] Snippets of information convey the essentials of each monarch along with small, succinct and pretty little images, and knowledge is imparted with lightness and delight. […] Every page is entertaining and all the facts worth knowing. - Nicollette Jones, Sunday Times

Kings & Queens will make a wonderful addition to any primary school library/classroom and will be a great accompaniment to history lessons but most of all it will make a beautiful gift that can be treasured forever. - Little Blog of Library Treasures

Williams tells us the good, the bad and the ugly in bite-sized chunks […] In schools this can be used to develop discussions or topics for further research and, at home, it can be the start of time spent on a deeper exploration of the moments in history that capture the imagination. This visual extravaganza is available now from Walker Books. - The Letterpress Project

A deceptively informative volume […] As with all the best reference books, Williams provides us with just enough dates and facts - and plenty of unforgettable details. - Emily Bearn, The Oldie
