Take a journey to a vanished world with the ADVENTURES IN TIME* series - stories so exciting you won't believe they're all true

'Winter has come; and in a far distant land, a warrior queen is expecting a child...'

Step through these pages into the Tudor world: a dangerous place, where one miss-step could cost your life. Through the eyes of Henry VIII's six very different queens, from a brave Spanish princess to a wise English widow, historian Dominic Sandbrook takes us on a thrilling journey through the twists and turns of a dramatic age. For no one is safe from the wheel of fortune: it can take you from a golden throne to the Tower of London...

The Adventures in Time series brings the past alive for twenty-first century children. These stories are every bit as exciting as those of Harry Potter or Matilda Wormwood. The only difference is they actually happened...

*(Perfect for all readers who enjoy tales of heroes, villains, jousting, beheadings and fat tyrants)
