The Thief, the Fool and the Big Fat King, Paperback Book

The Thief, the Fool and the Big Fat King Paperback

Illustrated by Helen Flook

Part of the Tudor Tales series


Every day, hapless hopefuls - or 'coneys', as the locals call them - come to dirty and dangerous London town, trying to seek their fortunes.

Who is waiting for them? Tricksters and conmen, that's who - like young Eleanor's family.

Eleanor becomes troubled by her family's cunning and foils their plans to catch a coney.

Meanwhile, fearsome King Henry VIII has some rather cruel ideas of justice ...for everyone.
