Synopsis

Avoid Being an Aristocrat in the French Revolution! by Jim Pipe

This gripping account of the perils of the French Revolution is based on the true story of Grace Elliott, a Scotswoman who lived through the terrors and survived to tell the tale. This is not a good time to be an aristocrat. As the revolution breaks out in France, angry peasants roam the countryside, burning castles and killing aristocrats. If the mob don't get you, the guillotine will. You'll soon realise why you should avoid the French Revolution. The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like as an artistocrat caught up in the revolution. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
