The jousting painting shows how King Henri II of France was mortally wounded. (He actually died some hours later.) Henry VIII over in England also got injured--knocked out cold--in the tilt about 25 years previously. After Henri's death, I don't think kings participated much or at all.

꧁ If you see me leaving this group, please add me again. It's just that Im so desperate to go out! 🙄

꧁ Never in my wildest dreams have I imagined myself entering a bank, wearing a mask, and asking for money. 😄

꧁ Never thought my hands would one day consume more alcohol than my liver... ever!😝

꧁ Lock down seems like a Netflix series: just when you think it's over, they release the next season.🤩

꧁ Im starting to like this mask thing. I went to the supermarket yesterday and two people that I owe money to didnt recognize me. 🤪

꧁ Those complaining that we didnt have enough holidays, what now? 😍

꧁ I need to social distance myself from my fridge; I tested positive for excess weight! 😋

꧁ Im not planning on adding 2020 to my age. I didnt even use it! I don't know about 2021. Does it exist?😁

꧁ We want to publicly apologize to the year 2019 for all the bad things we said about it. 😃

꧁ To all the ladies who were praying for their husbands to spend more time with them how are you doing? 🤣

꧁ My washing machine only accepts pyjamas these days. I put in a pair of jeans and a message popped up : Stay Home " 😂

2019: Avoid negative people
2020: Avoid positive people
2021: Avoid people because you dont know if they are positive or negative
Can't wait for 2022

Does this irk any other writer of children's books?  It seems to me that whatever kind of celebrity they are they feel the need to write a children's book. We've had Sarah Ferguson - the Duchess of York, Paul McCartney, Prince Charles, Meghan Markle and a few others I can't remember. Instant publisher acceptance and wide publicity  :icon_rolleyes:

If they really wrote the books themselves, I'd consider them unqualified to write them. But I seriously doubt they even did that. They had an idea, and someone was paid to flesh it out, because the publisher knew the celebrity name would sell it. If you think it through, is there any reason in the world to want your child to read a book "written" by Madonna? Um, no.

Selling children's books has always been one of the very hardest roads for authors. Really, really hard even if you have ins with publishers. So these instant books make it even harder for legit authors. Thanks, Famous Person with No Talent.

Not that every children's book that gets published is wonderful; many are horrible. Assume these celebrity books are the worst of the worst and pass them by. Chances are, your children won't be missing a thing.
