Ian Baillie's Stuff & Nonsense is an irreverent look at English kings and queens in comic verse. If you want to know who came where and when in our list of Royals this is a fun way to do it. Did you know that James II's brain is preserved in a bronze urn in Paris? Who was Hugh Despenser and what was his sorry and brutal end? It took a long time for Royals to settle their differences without resorting to the sword or the executioner's axe. And a lot of strife was down to religion. Presented in a modern style, the book comes supplied with references and notes which help the reader solidify each historical figure with fact and anecdote. For children, adults and students of history alike, Stuff & Nonsense is a light-hearted way to learn what stirred in the often dark heart of the realm.
