Synopsis

Marie-Antoinette A Historical Tale by Catherine de Duve, Thierry Bosquet

This book helps you learn about the life of Marie-Antoinette, the young Austrian princess who grew to become the notorious, but very stylish Queen of France. It includes a free mask. It is suitable for children aged 4 to 14 years of age. Marie-Antoinette is a little princess who loves to dance and play like any other child. At thirteen she must leave her family, her friends and her country to marry the Dauphin, the future King of France. A new life begins in Versailles where the tiresome Madame Etiquette makes sure she follows all the rules. Marie-Antoinette is very stylish. She sets the fashion with extravagant headdresses and sumptuous gowns. As a Queen, she favours a more private life, surrounded by her children and close to nature. This is a jewel of a book which lets you discover the childhood of Marie-Antoinette, her life as the Dauphine, her lavish lifestyle and the entertainment of a queen.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

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.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
