Customer Reviews

Fantastic Resource

This is a wonderful introduction to the history of the French Revolution as seen through the passionate eyes of Charlotte Corday. This book would be a much welcomed guide to all parents traveling in Paris with their kids. History can be a dry subject, but not when told by fascinating characters of the era. Interactive, but not so much that you're buried in your eReader.
I highly recommend this book, even if you're just an armchair traveler.

Educational and entertaining

We enjoyed traveling in time with this well written story in this interactive format.
