Description


The Book of Princes and Princesses is a collection of fourteen true short stories, each centered around a European monarch, including Napoleon, Elizabeth I, Fredrick the Great and more. Though these figures seem larger than life, The Book of Princes and Princesses portray them as real, relatable people who struggled to achieve greatness, and sometimes failed anyway. Following the monarchs' rise to power and childhood, this collection depicts the rulers' faults, struggles, and triumphs, highlighting the diverse circumstances of power. Napoleon Bonaparte serves as an example of this, as he rose from poor status to be a great emperor and a celebrated war general. However, these achievements are challenged at the Battle of Waterloo. Though appropriate and enjoyable for all ages, The Book of Princes and Princesses by Andrew and Leonora Lang was originally meant for children. Seeking to spark natural interest in history, The Book of Princes and Princesses depicts celebrated European authority figures with originality and honesty. Through the portrayal of fourteen rulers, this collection allows readers valuable perspective and insight on European culture throughout centuries of historical and religious movements. This edition of The Book of Princes and Princesses by Andrew and Leonora Lang now features a striking new cover design and is printed in a font that is both modern and readable. With these accommodations, this edition of The Book of Princes and Princesses creates an accessible and pleasant reading experience for modern audiences while restoring the original authenticity and mastery of Andrew and Leonora Lang's work.
