The Queen's Maid

By June Crebbin
Illustrated by James de la Rue

Lady Jane has a taste for Elizabethan adventure in this spirited historical Racing Read.

Lady Jane Hargrave is a reluctant maid of honour at the court of Queen Elizabeth I – but before she knows it she is appearing in a Shakespeare play, helping Francis Drake fight off the Spanish Armada and saving the Queen’s life. Long live the Queen! Long live adventure!

  • Join Lady Jane on breathless adventures in the real historical setting of Elizabethan England.
  • Racing Reads are pacy and engaging first novels for the newly independent reader. Each book is extensively illustrated and the story-per-chapter structure is ideal for building reading confidence.
