Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Butler
This picture biography describes the life and death of Queen Marie Antoinette of France. At age 14, Marie Antoinette had to leave her family and country to marry a boy she had never met. As queen of France, Marie Antoinette was known for her fashionable clothes, glittering jewels, and elegant parties. But when the French people turned on her, her world changed forever. This is one of Capstone's "Snap Books" about queens and princesses. What's more fascinating than the world of royalty? The chapters include "Royal Wedding Day," "Antoine of Austria," "Queen of France," and "Revolution in the Air," and "A Tragic End." Pertinent illustrations (paintings) are included on nearby pages. It's an elegant book that seems to reflect the text perfectly. There is a glossary, an index, a bibliography, and a list of Internet sources for more information. It is a good choice for all libraries. The reading level for this series is about grades 3 to 4, while the interest level is about grades 3 to 9. Reviewer: Naomi Butler
