This was the most interesting and informative children's biography we have read to date. Complete with a French pronunciation guide, this book was more than fact filled. Prior to this reading I had always regarded Joan of Arc as more of a exaggerated legend but Diane Stanley gave me not only facts but also sources as well as very clearly identifying conjecture. Full pages of text followed by full page illustrations helped with the flow of information and the children were eager to keep reading despite the vast quantity of detail. A very satisfying read.
