Summary
A biography about the young French woman who, inspired by voices, led the French army to victory over the English, was burned at the stake for witchcraft, and eventually was declared a saint.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The irrepressible You Wouldn't Want To . . . series has already assured us that we wouldn't want to be Tutankhamen, Marco Polo, or a Sumerian slave but how about French army leader and eventual saint, Joan of Arc? Well, no. As a 16-year-old peasant, Joan (or you, as the second-person text insists) lives a quiet, humble life. One of the great things about the series is all of the historical lessons posing as survival tips, and after Joan hears the voices of saints and joins the army, those tips change from how to handle household chores to how to survive on the battlefield. As presented, the political pressures of the Hundred Years' War are muddled, but what's perfectly clear is the danger Joan thrusts herself into. Feel like ignoring those voices, Joan? Tough: You must obey them it's a holy command! Antram's antic cartoon art infuses everything with dark humor, even when Joan is accused of witchcraft and burned at the stake. Immersive, fun, and convincing, too.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"
