I really like Tony Robinson s work in the historical field Time Team, Worst Jobs, etc., but I have to admit that I m a bit disappointed in him I was browsing through the medieval section of this book, and read the section about bad King Richard throwing his innocent nephews in the cold, dark Tower of London The Tower at that time, while they did keep some prisoners there, was actually the royal residence in London And when young Edward arrived in London, the Tower was decided on as the most suitable, posh location for him to take up residence So the boys definitely were not living in the cold and dark Shame on you, Tony, for perpetuating a wrong story that is easily checked out What other information is wrong, then This seemed mistitled It really should be Abused Kids the horrible ways ancient adults treated kids It was a history of child maltreatment sprinkled with various individual stories of bad kids The authors used a light tone, but I would be careful which child I gave this to as it can be frightening Actually, I am going to give it to a mature tween as a Halloween gift as it is scarier than the Halloween book I bought for that purpose
