Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
It's amusing to remember that The Three Musketeers is really the story of d'Artagnan—a proud, brave country lad with much to learn—and his quest to join the famous trio of Athos, Porthos and Aramis in the French court of Louis XIV. In a comedy of errors, the young man challenges an insulter to a duel, has his papers stolen, is welcomed in Paris anyway, and bumbles into duels with the very men he wishes to join. But the confrontations are interupted by the villainous Cardinal's Guards. Choosing to fight rather than be arrested, d'Artagnan joins the musketeers in routing the enemy—thus earning the coveted right to shout "All for one and one for all!" Randall's brisk adaptation is part of the "Classic Collection"—a new series that abridges and retells classic novels in clear, contemporary language, with new illustrations. The library-bound editions also include brief author biographies. This version of The Three Musketeers is given the Reading Level 4 and should prove useful as an introduction to Dumas' work for younger readers. It might even inspire them to reach for the original. Reviewer: Kathleen Karr
School Library Journal
Gr 2–3—These titles are perfect examples of why abridged editions often get a bad rap. They are dry, dull, and lifeless and in no way represent what these classics could bring to readers. The plots have not really changed but are so abbreviated as to remove any similarity between these titles and the originals. In addition, the illustrations are flat and do not contribute to the stories. They are not child-friendly and reinforce the notion that reading classics—old, boring, long stories—is no fun. Abridged classics from the "Stepping Stones Classics" series (Random) at least offer readers a taste of the real thing.—Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
