Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 1-4. Eschewing sensationalism, Tompert adds Joan of Arc to her previous biographies of saints Nicholas and Patrick. The "voices" Joan heard urging her to free France from English tyranny naturally play a part in the story, but the telling dwells on the historical rather than the mystical. Tompert does a remarkable job of compressing the turbulent events of twelfth-century France into digestible bites that kids can understand, and her solid writing is well matched by Garland's artwork, which has the look and feel of digital enhancement. The high-gloss effects and interesting perspectives make some of the visuals look as if they are about to jump off the page; the depiction of the burning of Joan is especially vivid and dramatic. Yet, the technical process used for the artwork also results in obviously layered, sometimes fuzzy, images. That's a quibble, however, in a book that gives a fresh treatment to a well-known story.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Out of the four picture book biographies I have found on Joan of Arc this one was the most geared for younger kids. That being said it was still a lengthy read for a picture book and probably wouldn't be of interest for any students younger than 4th grade. It must be challenging to sum up such an extraordinary being in only a few pages. Since the Joan's life and times are not typically covered until the 7th grade these lengthier reads are fine though. The authors note in the afterward was very interesting and should not be overlooked.

Girls need great role models too, and Joan of Arc is a wonderful heroine! The book is well written for a 1st grader and she was very excited to get it.
