The Maid, the Witch and the Cruel Queen Paperback

Illustrated by Helen Flook

Part of the Tudor Tales series



The day Queen Mary Tudor - also known as 'Bloody Mary' because she has anyone who doesn't go to church burned - came to town was the most terrifying day of young Meg's life.

Everyone wants to impress Her Majesty, and what better way to show their devotion than by burning a witch themselves.

But the "witch" in question, Old Nan, is more clever and cunning than the townspeople who hunt her.

In the end, it is someone else who sparks the ferocious temper of the frightful Queen...Terry Deary's Tudor Tales explore the infamous world of the Tudors through the eyes of children who could have lived at the time.

These stories feature real monarchs and characters and take place in some of the most recognizable Tudor settings.
