" This book portrays Mary as more of a naive and innocent young girl. Other historians believe that she was a schemer who plotted behind Queen Elizabeth's back. " said.

" I read this to my daughter. We both really liked it. I would like to read more about her in a grown-up book, and no, you would not want to be Mary, Queen of Scots. " said.

" It was cool. I liked how the hints were there. I liked all the pictures and it was a really fun book. " said.

" Very busy layout. Lots of text and side text boxes to read. " said.

" Recommended Ages: grades 4 - 6Get ready...you're only a few days old, and already you're queen of an unruly country, threatened by enemies at home and abroad. Your father is dead, and there are very few people you can rely on. You are the one and only Mary, Queen of Scots. " said.

" Poor Mary Queen of Scots. So many court intrigues. Right, I wouldn't want to be her.Book was hilarious and, as usual, FABulous illustrations. It's a very tall order to write about someone in "30 pages or less, including great illustrations," but they've definitely touched on all the high points. Very nicely done. " said.

"The "You Wouldn't Want to Be..." series offers a glimpse of persons and occupations of the past. The format is clever and appealing to young people (and older folks like me, too), using word bubbles, illustrated asides, and sneak peek "handy hints".

Mary, Queen of Scots life, for instance, was very complicated but was deftly handled in this slim volume of twenty-nine pages. The cartoon illustrations alone would engage the younger audience, but all is fleshed out with a plethora of facts and details.
" said.

"This is another excellent entry in the You Wouldn't Want to Be 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.
" said.
