Another of the historical books in the if you were me and lived in series. This one is about Elizabethan England and was a lot of fun to read. I actually learned where the meaning of “it’s raining cats and dogs” came from in this book – so I’ll never say you can’t learn anything from kids books! I really enjoy learning about different cultures and histories in this book series!

I received a free copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
