Book of the Month - Mary, Queen of Scots: Escape from Lochleven Castle
Our book of the month for June is tied into our theme - June for Juniors!
450 years ago, Mary, Queen of Scots undertook a daring escape from Lochleven Castle, where she had been kept captive for almost a year. In this latest story from Carnegie Medal winner Theresa Breslin this dramatic true story is given new life.
Accompanied by atmospheric illustrations of the Scottish landscape, this tale bridges folklore and historical fact and gives children the chance to learn about one of Scotland's most powerful and infamous women.
Through Theresa Breslin's gripping story, young readers will feel the tension of Mary's imprisonment in the castle and the excitement of her daring escape plans.
Published by Floris, Mary, Queen of Scots: Escape from Lochleven Castle will be one of the stars of our children's range this summer.
