At the end of the thirteenth century Scotland was without a monarch and Edward I of England seized the opportunity to try to bring Scotland into his kingdom. Robert Bruce made himself king of Scotland and led the fight to keep his country independent. Who was Robert Bruce and was he a real king? What tactics did he use in the battles against the English army? How is he remembered today? This work is highly illustrated with colour photographs and diagrams. Text is clear and divided into easily digestible paragraphs, whilst key words are highlighted. Suggestion boxes throughout each book provide activities and tips for the reader, whilst a spread at the back for teachers and parents provides more activity suggestions and advice on how to use the book with children.
