This is another excellent entry in the <i>You Wouldn't Want to Be</i> series, this time looking at one of the most romantic figures and overwrought figures in history, Mary Queen of Scots. Author MacDonald of interpreting the historical facts for an elementary school audience. And she also manages not to get caught up in over romanticizing Mary, something many other authors do. The text is written in short bursts, which is good for the struggling reader, and is illustrated by humourous, cartoon-like illustrations.

This is an excellent addition to any classroom or home that is studying Elizabethan England.
