It’s Day Two of the blog tour for The Raucous Royals by Carlyn Beccia.
I really had a great time with this book and can’t wait until Superfast to-be-homeschooled Toddler is big enough to appreciate it. My favorite class when I was a girl in an all-girls’ school was British History with Mrs. Phillips. For a long time I could actually recite all of the rulers of England, starting with William the Conqueror. My friend Bethany and I thought it was hilarious that our book specified that William landed on the shores of England and 9 am, and because it mentioned that the waters were cold and we were also taking French, we speculated at 9:01 he must’ve said, “Aie!”
There’s nothing about dear Bill in Raucous Royals, there are lots of fun treats like a cryptography lesson in the section on Mary, Queen of Scots–with a tantalizing tidbit on why J, V, and W are missing.
Carlyn Beccia also maintains a fascinating blog with even more historical mysteries. It’s a must read for anyone who enjoys seeing the past come to life.
