    One thought on “The Queen's Smuggler: William Tyndale”

    1. I found this story about William Tyndale to very good and interesting with all the facts about his life written in story form by the authors.I enjoy reading this series and this is one my favorite one that I have read so far. I think that the authors did very well with making the story of Sarah and her family being able to help William Tyndale with his work of writing the New Testament in English really come to life for the readers.

    2. This is a great series to teach History especially people who don't like it, it helps to make a interesting story and include facts. I am an exception since I LOVE history, its my favorite subject in school.

    3. William Tyndale is a translator for Bibles in 1535 England, this however is illegal, so he gets caught. Sarah Poyntz, the main character, has to save his life and work by smuggling a copy of the New Testament to the Queen and hopefully save his life.

    4. Historical fiction set in the time of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, and William Tyndale's translation of the Bible. A good read for upper elementary ages trying to learn more about the covert translation of the Bible and the life in those times.
