Catherine Johnson is one of our best writers of historical fiction [...] It's riveting, irresistible reading, the kind of true life adventure that inspires readers to find out more, and to rethink their own view of the world. Don't miss. * Books for Keeps *
Written in clear, concise language, this dark red banded book is action packed, and at a time when most news articles are concerned with equal rights for all, this makes it the ideal book for any classroom or home bookshelf. [...] Although many KS2 readers are reluctant to be seen reading colour-banded books, this is most definitely a 'real book'. With short chapters and supported by detailed black and white illustrations by Rachel Sanson, this is an ideal read for a child who perhaps prefers fact to fiction. -- ReadingZone
A swashbuckling dash through the extraordinary career of Alexandre Dumas's father -- Imogen Russell Williams * TLS *
A fabulous book for children who dream of stepping back through time to other periods of history. Despite being a relatively short read, this is a book that draws a fabulous line between accessibility and detail. -- Starlight and Stories * starlightandstories.com *
