Kings and Queens of England

Jen Green, read by Benjamin Soames. Naxos AudioBooks, unabridged, two CDs, 2.5 hrs., $17.98 ISBN 978-184-379-653-4
Green delivers a brief guide to the personalities that have made up centuries of English monarchy, charting the paths of rulers from Alfred of Wessex in the late ninth century to the modern-day Windsors, who currently occupy the various thrones of England. Narrator Benjamin Soames provides a quick pace to what would otherwise be a dry laundry list of long-dead kings and queens. In fact, Soames’s narration enhances the text significantly and makes it downright interesting. A large part of Soames’s success is due to the fact that he is able to clearly convey the tension and conflict that tend to mark royal ascensions. Ages 9–up. A Dover paperback. (Feb.)
