An unusual alphabet tale, this book uses the ABC’s as a tool to channel information about royalty, both in fiction and in the real world.  Each letter is beautifully illustrated with a brief rhyme explaining the words for that letter: nobility, Snow White and Xerxes, to name a few.  Each page also contains a sidebar with far more advanced information about the topic introduced for either a parent or an older reader. 

The biggest deterrent to this book is the alphabet structure, which may cause the most appropriate readers not to select it.
