Product Description

From AudioFile

Will Marsden and his family solve a murder while listening to his uncle tell the story of Richard III and the Princes in the Tower. Hardiman individualizes the cast by giving each person a unique voice and personality. His British accent readily slips into Scottish pronunciations for several characters. Hardiman gives Great Uncle George a gruff, grizzly voice; Will's voice reflects the eagerness of youth. Meg, the saucy housemaid, conceals her intelligence and caring behind a flippant attitude. Hardiman's performance enlivens the historical background, well-described characters and intriguing plots. P.A.J. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Do not miss Tudor Terror! Sept. 9 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Although this series is rather misnamed, methinks, since I didn't find it in the least bit scary, the books are a real treasure. Terry Deary, beloved for his "Horrible Histories", presents history again, this time in a nicely wrapped package complete with a timeline and quotes from Shakespeare. This is young adult mystery story and historical fiction combined in one, and I think anyone who reads in the genre will dig "Tudor Terror". "Prince of Rags and Patches" is the best one I read so far; the riddle of the "Princes in the Tower" is intriguing.

"The Prince of Rags and Patches" is incorrect Jan. 30 2001
By Penny Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
I read The Prince of Rags and Pathes a few months ago, and I enjoyed it. However, since then i have found out the truth about Richard III: he did not order Sir James Tyrell to murder his nephews, as this book suggests. I would not recommend anyone read this book, unless they want to be introduced to the widely believed but totally incorrect story. I would instead recommend "The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey, which answers this "riddle" of the Princes in the Tower. Apart from this one book, the rest of Terry Deary's books, especially his "Horrible Histories" series, are an entertaining and informing look at historical events. But please, do not believe this one book: while the Marsdens are fictional, so too is the plotting, murdering Richard III portrayed in it.
