Queen Victoria's Bathing Machineby Gloria Whelan
Synopses & Reviews
Prince Albert comes up with a royally creative solution to Queen Victorias modesty concerns in this true story that reveals an overlooked splash of history.
Poor Queen Victoria! She loves to swim, but cant quite figure out how to get to the water without her devoted subjects glimpsing her swimming suit.

This quirky tale about the longest reigning monarch in British history is as fun as it is authentic, and the book includes a picture of the actual bathing machine Prince Albert created.
