    I love the idea of this book; however, I ended up not loving the book itself. I don't want to seem like I am tearing this book apart, because I really do love the idea of it, but I ended up not liking a larger chunk. Two of the big things that really disappointed me were the artwork and the quality of the history.

I don't want to seem like I am tearing this book apart, because I really do love the idea of it, but I ended up not liking a larger chunk. Two of the big things that really disappointed me were the artwork and the quality of the history. In the beginning/introduction to the book, the author/artist stated that they tried to delve completely into the world of each female to do their sketches so that each queen would have a different look and feel that matches their personality/culture. Because of this, I had pretty awesome expectations of the artwork. I thought that each one was going to have a different style or feel, or even be from different mediums. Sadly, no. All of the artwork looked the same, with one queen being indistinguishable from another unless their skin-tones varied. The opportunity to utilize various styles of art was huge, there were so many options! Each queen could have been done in a style classic to their culture/region/time-frame, which would have been so cool! If nothing had been said to create a standard, I don't think I would have been disappointed in the artwork; I wouldn't have thought it was amazing, but I wouldn't have been disappointed. History-wise, there are some facts in this book that have been discredited or explained away as myths. The blurbs about each queen feel like they are taken from Wikipedia with little understanding or further research into the various humans. It is very obvious that the author favored certain rulers over others, as they are portrayed in a kinder light. Either that, or the author didn't have enough facts to properly represent their accomplishments fully. I know that this review has a lot of negative, which breaks my heart. I have waited quite a while after finishing this book to write the review with the hope that my feelings would lighten. Sadly, I am still just disappointed in it. I hope that it helps to pave the way for even more books like this though! I hope that some little one picks it up, sees a name that speaks to them, and then goes and does research on that person. I hope it is a jumping board. I love the movement that is creating so many of this style of book; it is so important! I really do appreciate that the author made an attempt to grow the genre.

    Colorful illustrations throughout, in fact more illustrations than text. I also was expecting more contemporary than ancient Egypt and Cleopatra for the women. Most were queens who became rulers by female guiles and intrigue. History is full of that however. It's a quick read, not for a serious scholar. Teens might enjoy also.

    Twenty different queens from around the world are celebrated in this volume. A short biography with five pages of illustrations are allotted per queen. There are the usual suspects: Catherine the Great, Elizabeth I and Hatsheput. But there are others that you might not have known from Asia, such as Lakshmi Bai or Wu Zetian. A good book if a little, well, little. It would have been nice to have more illustrations; it fells like it is an abridged version of a larger work.

    Cute, well illustrated, and I learned a bunch of stuff because it was brief enough to hold my shortening attention span.

    I've always had an obsession about Queens and Princesses... I think the "Royal Diaries" book series as a tween greatly influenced me in this area. This is a quick read, you get a brief history of each Queen mentioned, and then an illustrated few pages with extra facts about the queen. I love the art style, more like a journaling art and hand writing. Interesting quick read if you dig all things queenly.

    Not really what I expected, I was thinking the biographies of each woman would be longer. Each one was only a few paragraphs followed by some illustrations. It did inspire me to look up several of the ladies, who I'd never heard of before. I enjoyed All Hail The Queen.

    I really enjoyed the variety of people covered in this book. While there were some I was familiar with, I learned a great deal about some Queens I had never heard of.

    I read in English but this review is in Bahasa Indonesia Suatu ketika menemukan satu unggahan di Twittter. Di kicauan itu ada empat sampul buku yang langsung menarik perhatianku. Keempatnya merupakan buku-buku yang bisa dikatakan membicarakan perihal perempuan. Selain itu, sepertinya mereka adalah buku dengan ilustrasi. Akhirnya aku memutuskan untuk mencari dan membaca All Hail the Queen. Awalnya aku kira bukunya tebal. Seperti buku-buku yang membahas tentang pemimpin wanita yang pernah aku baca.

Keempatnya merupakan buku-buku yang bisa dikatakan membicarakan perihal perempuan. Selain itu, sepertinya mereka adalah buku dengan ilustrasi. Akhirnya aku memutuskan untuk mencari dan membaca All Hail the Queen. Awalnya aku kira bukunya tebal. Seperti buku-buku yang membahas tentang pemimpin wanita yang pernah aku baca. Rupanya tidak. Ia malah tidak lebih dari 150 halaman. All Hail the Queen rupanya hanya memasukkan 20 pemimpin wanita dari masa lampau. Di dalamnya ada nama yang sudah familiar seperti Cleopatra, Ratu Victoria, dan Ratu Elizabeth I. Sisanya, adalah nama-nama yang diklaim oleh penulis, dihapus dari sejarah. Tepat seperti dugaanku, buku ini juga dilengkapi dengan ilustrasi. Masing-masing tokoh diceritakan melalui 1 halaman narasi dan 3 halaman ilustrasi. Sederhana dan ringan. Sebatas mendeskripsikan siapa tokoh tersebut, bagaimana ia bisa mejadi pemimpin, dan apa yang terjadi di akhir hidupnya. Konsep buku ini mengingatkanku pada buku Lalita--yang membahas 51 tokoh perempuan Indonesia melalui ilustrasi menarik.

    The art was beautiful and I definitely learned about some women I'd never heard of before, but I was definitely hoping for a little more about each women - there was about a page of actual biography (and they're short pages), then a few facts with images. Fortunately, there is a really in-depth bibliography in the back, so I'll definitely be using that to find more books to check out.

    Concise descriptions of each queen's reign, accomplishments, and if any, troubles, accompanied by beautiful illustrations. I knew and have heard of some of these queens while encountering others for the first time. Great as a gift for children.

    Four stars for the beautiful illustrations, two stars for the info contained. (Of Catherine the Great’s three pages, one was all about her lovers. WHY?!?)

    The few paragraphs about each ruler didn't tell much, and the illustrations weren't to my taste.

    It was great to read about some queens id never heard of before but I just found the book lacking. Like maybe less queens but more information. The watercolour pictures were cute though
