Who in the World Was the Unready King? by Connie Clark

Ethelred the Unready was just 10-years-old when he was crowned king of England. Over the course of his reign, he dealt with bad advisors, boasting cowards, and Vikings. Who in the World Was The Unready King? tells his story to children. It’s written in a very engaging way and includes an author’s note about what was made up (dreams and thoughts) and what wasn’t (pretty much everything else) and where our information about Ethelred comes from. This is an excellent book for elementary age children who are studying medieval England or Vikings.
