I have trouble telling whether this story is based in fact or fiction, but I found it highly engaging. The story continues the story of the two characters from the previous book while mixing in some European historical context by expanding the setting of the previous book. You get a glimpse of Russian oppression and how people fought against it. It's good cause for discussion among readers. It's also an entertaining story with heroism and daring driving everything forward. Good read.

I didn't know there was another one after the first!
And apparently there's a third?
Anyway, this one is very dramatic in the story telling,
and in the tricks they do.

The art is beautiful!
A very fun read!
good story -- best of the 3
not a huge fan of her writing style -- feels rushed sometimes
pictures are beautiful
A childs book that is sophisticated with a powerful message, yet still written in a way to still appeal to a preschooler.
Didn't realize this was a series. Have to read the other books with my little. We quite enjoyed this one.
Illustrations are just as beautiful as Mirette on the High Wire, and the story is just as captivating.
