From the School Library Book Review: “Gr 2-4 Recently, there have been several picture books and at least one novel about Joan of Arc; Hodges’s retelling of the famous story can claim a niche as a first introduction to this most famous French heroine to a younger age group. The brief narrative includes only the most familiar incidents and anecdotes of Joan’s life in skillfully structured language that is clear and understandable. Like the text, Rayevsky’s illustrations are reduced to essentials. Delicately drawn etchings with subdued coloration, inspired by medieval manuscripts, are placed within bordered rectangles of varied size. ”
