Synopsis

Avoid Being Joan of Arc! by Fiona MacDonald

As an ordinary girl born during in France during the Hundred Years War, you have an overwhelming desire to save your country, but how? Girls aren't allowed to fight! But heavenly voices compel you! When heavenly voices and battlefield glories are replaced by the threat of execution, Joan stands fast in what she believes and becomes a proud symbol of independence. The Danger Zone is a constantly-growing library of over 50 exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history. The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes (or sandals or army boots or cloth sacks) of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived - from pyramid builders to viking explorers, from medieval knights to the crew of the Titanic. Humourous cartoon-style illustrations and speech bubbles bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events. Each spread comes complete with a Handy Hint box, offering a clever tip on how to survive whatever ghastly situation you've found yourself in.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
