Explore the incredible life of Queen Elizabeth II in this children's biography.

Discover the inspiring story of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, in this fascinating kids' biography.

This compelling book looks at Elizabeth's life, both as a public and private figure. It traces her early years as a princess, her experiences in the women's army during World War II, her coronation and her life as Queen both at home and in the public eye. Learn how Elizabeth has worked alongside 13 British prime ministers, met leaders from around the world, and has remained a stable presence as head of the British royal family.

DK Life Stories goes beyond the basic facts to tell the true life stories of history's most inspiring people. Full-colour photographs and hand-drawn illustrations complement age-appropriate, narrative text. Definition boxes, information sidebars, and inspiring quotes add depth, while a handy reference section at the back makes DK Life Stories the one biography series everyone will want to collect.
