A short introduction to the many marriages and divorces of Henry VIII, with an emphasis on how they changed England. Young listeners learn all about Henry's life and various relationships, including the one with the Pope, and are introduced to the concept of the Reformation. The writers here do an excellent job of presenting the material in a matter-of-fact style that is accurate while still being suitable for kids. Performer Todd MacDonald narrates in a slightly sing-song voice that's great for children, with a light Australian accent that seems more charming than distracting.
