   An invaluable translation
The life of the maid is not only well told by the author, but the translator Albert Guerard has included an introduction and notes on life and the thoughts of Michelet, which are important to the modern reader. This short work is well worth the ownership. Anyone interested in France, the Middle Ages, the Hundred Years War or the life of an important woman in Christendom will find this now classic work, a gemstone.
   Excellent book
Joan of Arc thought I ordered this book and thought it was. He was 5 at the time I bought it and held his interest all the way through. The illustrations were beautiful and there was just the right level of information detail. There were some spots where it was difficult for me to keep track of the timing as far as how many years this took place, but I think that is fine for the intended audience and we can delve into it with more mature works as children get older. In all, an excellent introduction to Joan of Arc.
   instead of being a collection of interesting period paintings and rich tapestries of what Joan's environment would have been lik
This is without question a children's book. At around 20 pages it is perhaps 38 to 14 inch thick, a small booklet. What was very disappointing is that within these 20 odd pages, instead of being a collection of interesting period paintings and rich tapestries of what Joan would have been like, we get these same 20 pages with fairly modern childish illustrations by SAME PERSON. No paintings from this period, no white tapestries, just 20 pages by the same artist. This is an okay book for children. DO NOT BUY, thinking that you will see some visual representations lacking in more detailed books on Joan or the Hundred Years War.
   A Good Book for Adults and Children
The book that this one is based on is very close to the original. It's written for young adults. My nieces and nephews will enjoy reading it.
   Joan la Aventurera
The book Joan of the Arc is important because it shows how a woman can help poor people who have nothing to eat. She was an adventurous woman because she liked to travel with her friend King Louis and they were very good and inseparable friends and they fought together in the wars. Joan loved children very much and was respectful with them. The book gave me a better understanding of woman's pride.
   Perfect length for an older elementary student
This was a wonderful addition to our study of the Middle Ages. It is a long picture book, so we read it in a few days.
   Handsome to look at and well written
Our granddaughter, Joan of Arc, has become very interested in our granddaughter, age eight. I bought this book because of the recommendations I read on Amazon and was not disappointed. We gave it only to our granddaughter, so I will have to check back with her and see what she thinks, but I am pleased.
   I wanted to love it, as we love to read and learn
I wanted to read it, as we love to learn and read, but this book just didn 't captivate us. It felt more like a college class on Joan in a children's book. The author does a great job and the illustrations are beautiful... It is just what we needed at that time, and I don 't think I could ever sit through it. We love the I am... books by Meltzer, just for comparison.
   Great for children!
Traveling to France and this is a wonderful book to present them with a part of the history of France. I also have three daughters, so that this was a fun story to introduce them to!
   Great informative book
We bought it for a book report. I think that kids were not interested, but had to read it. It is a good reference for Joan's life. Based on actual trial transcripts from her trial, which are still in existence.
