CD Audio. Set against the turbulent and drastically violent time of the French Revolution, this story is about a boy who is destined to become a hero. The plot takes you from Paris to London and back to Paris again to confront the full horrors of the guillotine. The Red Necklace is a tremendous adventure story told a breathtaking pace. Brilliantly rich and intricate in design and characters, this story is guaranteed to excite and compel its reader.

The Red Necklace (Audio) by Sally Gardner
France 1789: a time of terror; a charismatic boy, Yann, who must find out who he is; the daring rescue of Sido, an aristocrat's daughter - these are the elements in this tremendous adventure by a consummate storyteller, a marvellous tale of the first days of the French Revolution.
'Brilliantly rich and complex. An enchanting story for anyone of 10 and upwards.' -- Amanda Craig, Observer
'Sally Gardner's follow-up to I, Coriander, aimed at 10 to 16-year-olds, is enthralling: a vividly detailed concoction of murder and romance, drama and intrigue, set against the backdrop of the French Revolution. The sense of rising panic on the Paris streets and in the salons suffuses a superb reading.' -- Carol Mansur, The Telegraph
