Publisher Description

In the rich turbulence of English history, one day stands magnificently apart: June 15, 1215, the day of the signing of the Magna Charta. On this day, the first blow for English freedom was struck and forever affected the Western world. Here is the story of three true men—Stephen Langton, William Marshall, and Hubert de Burgh—whose heroic deeds prevailed against the ever deceitful and crafty King John. The freedom and self-rule established by the Magna Charta set a precedent for other movements ever since, from the Declaration of Independence to the United Nations Charter.

Newbery Award–winning author James Daugherty gives us the dramatic and sweeping account of this pageantry of history through his inimitable style. This audio edition is sure to thrill and enlighten a new generation of readers.

"Succinct, well-written narrative of Richard the Lionheart, King John, and a little bit of Robin Hood, with an explanation of America's founding documents. I have thoroughly enjoyed this."

    " Great kids book on the subject. The story is well told and very accessible. Although, "freedom" is the greatest result it can find out of the story. "

    " There is much of the details of history I don't know. This was a great, simple read about the history of the Magna Charta which gave England it's first taste of freedom and rights for the people, a precursor to the constitution of the United States. "
