All for one and one for all! That’s the rallying cry of the Musketeers—guards of the French King—and the call to adventure for young readers enjoying their first taste of Dumas’ classic swashbuckler. Aramis, Athos, Porthos, and the not-quite-yet Musketeer D’Artagnan use their wits and their swords to battle an evil Cardinal, the traitorous Milady, and other enemies of the French court.

The physical book is pleasant to the hand, with sturdy binding, a good illustration on the cover and smooth pages with periodic illustrations. The story is the traditional tale, one we should all know.

We read this aloud at bedtime while we are studying this time period in history. I had forgotten it is a bit soap opera- ish, and you seem to lose some of the moral hoorahs that you feel when reading the original, but still as far as plot goes, it is a grabber for my kiddos.

(This review applies to the 'Classic Starts' adaptation.)A good retelling of Dumas' classic. It contains enough of the intrigue to make it interesting and a good representation of the book, without including details inappropriate for young readers. (I think the 'final disposition' of Milady is altered from the original, however.)
