Yes and yes. Once introduced to the enigmatic hero, the Scarlet Pimpernel, who uses his wits and a series of unique disguises to rescue French aristocrats from the guillotine, my students were, like me, hooked.
And what’s not to love? A broad pallet of well-developed characters, a classic, good-versus-evil mission, the pain of human weakness, and a subtle smattering of pleasing irony are satisfying at any age. With some well-chosen guide questions, this age group was able to unravel some of the causes and issues inherent in the French Revolution, explore themes such as deception, heroism, and the destructive nature of pride in relationships, and learn from the author’s use of setting and pace to advance her plot lines. As for the vocabulary, they washed it right down with a healthy dose of good, plain fun.
Get it, read it. You will not be disappointed if you have any romanticism and love of adventure in your heart.
