Royal history as you've never seen it before - in limericks!

Six times Henry Tudor got wed,
Unhappy with how his wives bred,
And when things turned sour,
Exploiting his power
He shouted out, `Off with her head!'

A hilarious new title from everyone's favourite limericksmith, Mick Twister. He did world history in the very successful There Was an Old Geezer Called Caesar, and now he's tackling a subject dear to all our hearts - kings and queens. They're all in here, from Alfred the Great to our present Queen, now the longest serving monarch in history. There is also a smattering of the most interesting European kings and queens, including such greats as Ivan the Terrible and Vlad the Impaler.

Mick's limericks are accompanied by entertaining snippets of text about the monarchs, and illustrations by Hannah Warren make the book the perfect gift package.
