The Ghost of Hampton Court
By Martha Hannah
“What a marvelous
book! I love it so much!
I could go on and on about all the things I
love about it. I just pore over those beautiful illustrations. I
particularly like the one in which Catharine is heading to the chopping
block (I love that interesting perspective). The moodiness that
permeates the book certainly leads up to that magnificent ghost picture.
Gives me the chills right now to think about it. I'm ready for the second
in the series.”

" 'The Ghost
of Hampton Court' does an incredible job of storytelling.
has a lot of cinematic appeal and needs to be on the PBS channel. It's a
good example of the use of higher level thinking skills which encourage
higher level reading.”
Lisa Youngblood, Director
Harker Heights Public Library,
Harker Heights, Texas
“Contains good historical
information and excellent illustrations. Boy was King
Henry VIII a mean guy! When he got mad at a wife he would get rid of
her, and sometimes that meant chopping off her head. I would recommend
this picture book to people age 12 and under. I would not recommend it
to faint-hearted readers. This is the first book in the series and I am
curious to see what comes next.”
Reader Views - Ben Weldon (age 10)
“I enjoyed reading
your book and laughed out loud at the testimonials on the back!
Really clever and hilarious! As the Brits
say, "Well done, both of you!”
Dr. Philancy Holder, Author and Art History

“The book is
beautiful. I read it to my students and they were crazy about it.
I really think you have a hit!!!”
Connie Edwards, 4th Grade Teacher
"Wonderful job on the book. It is a
fantastic story- I love the storytelling approach!"
Dianne de Las Casas, Author
