    1. The life of Joan of Arc is not one most parents would wish for their children, but that hasn't stopped the people behind the "You Wouldn't Want" series from putting young readers in the French hero's shoes. This brief biography is written in second person, as the narrator tells the audience that "You're Joan." What follows is a description of the tumultuous world of 14th-century France and the role Joan of Arc played in shaping her country's history. While the cartoon-style illustrations, and ch [...]



    2. Written in second person, choose-your-own-adventure style, this is fun biography of Joan of Arc for students. Lots of illustrations and side panels to keep the reader engaged. I did laugh out loud a bit though, when I got to the glossary. "DAMNED: a religious expression meaning that someone will go to hell after death." probably shouldn't have found that as amusing as I did.


    3. Eh. My brain hurt after reading this -- cartoons and text boxes don't necessarily make a text more enjoyable. And on an unrelated note, I'm pretty sure my super-awful Catechism teacher wouldn't have been pleased to see me read it.


    4. This is a must have series for any library collection. This edition focuses on the life and times of Joan of Arc. The illustrations are wonderful, but I felt the writing was a little vague. For reluctant readers though, this is a perfect match!


    5. Love this "juvenile" series. Learned a lot about 100 Years War.Very even-handed considering it deals with hallucinations, religion,war, greed, torture, etc.



    6. A hero or a confused girl hearing strange voices? Either way, Joan changed the course of history and is still remembered throughout France and the world today.
