Jane Austen's scalpel disinters the motives of her characters, and
though her age is so remote, her insights strike a modern note. At
Winchester you'll find her bones; her books are all in Waterstone's.
Alfred the Great, Robert the Bruce, Francis Drake, Christopher Wren,
Elizabeth Fry, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Emmeline Pankhurst, Ernest
Shackleton, Agatha Christie, J. K. Rowling...What do they all have in
common? They're all great Brits, and their works and achievements are
celebrated in charming verse along with many more in this entertaining
book. Muirden has regaled us before with rhyming romps through British
history. Now he presents us with 100 Great Brits ; witty and erudite,
this is the perfect gift to illuminate and amuse.
