Joan of Arc

by Diane Stanley


Quick Overview

Joan was a child whose country suffered under the horrors of invasion and civil war. By 19, she was called the savior of France--and a heretic who was killed by being burned at the stake. Almost 500-years later, she was declared a saint. Full-color illustrations.


Against the fascinating tapestry of Frances history during the Hundred Years' War, Diane Stanley unfolds the story of the simple thirteen-year-old village girl who in Just a few years would lead France to independence from English rule, and thus become a symbol of France's national pride. It is a story of vision and bravery, fierce determination, and tragic martyrdom. Diane Stanley's extraordinary gift to present historical information in an accessible and child-friendly format has never been more impressive, nor her skillful, beautifully realized illustrations (here imitating medieval illuminated manuscripts) more exquisite. Size 0.19" H x 10.98" L x 9.23" W, 48 pages
