What a great historical novel for kids! My girls (6 and 9) really loved it.
My eldest almost couldn't keep listening because of the prononciation of Jeanne... my girls are Franco-American, and are really tolerant of Americanized names, but they hated ( so did I for that matter) the way the female interpreter pronounced the name. We would have preferred the anglicized Joan or even JAN ( it is pronounced ZHANNE) the way it was done in an exaggerated way with a French J but then followed through with the EXCLUSIVELY MALE prononciation of ZHAWN nearly spoilt it for my children.
As true history buffs, the author did a fabulous job of giving children a window onto what the Middle Ages might have felt like to a group of youngsters. I really loved the way the author tackled heavy issues such as racism and discrimination in such an accessible thought provoking way. Really wonderful writing!
