School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-Presented in a textbooklike manner, but without source notes or bibliography, this is a general account of Joan of Arc's religious beliefs, transformation into a soldier, victorious battles, and death. Sidebars appear on each page, along with full-color photographs and illustrations that illuminate the superstitions, customs, and daily life of the period. Diane Stanley's Joan of Arc (Morrow, 1998) is more detailed. For younger readers, Margaret Hodges's Joan of Arc (Holiday, 1999) and Josephine Poole's Joan of Arc (Knopf, 1998) are preferable for their picture-book qualities of layout, design, and painterly illustrations.-Tina Hudak, St. Bernard's School, Riverdale, MD (c) Copyright 2010.
