Dumas's most famous story and possibly the most famous historical novel of all time.
Introducer- Allan Massie is a novelist, journalist, essayist and critic. His books include the Dark Ages trilogy and fictional lives of the Roman emperors. His most recent books are Surviving (2009), a novel about violence and alcohol set in Rome, and The Royal Stuarts, an enthralling account of that influential but ill fated dynasty
Gr 5 Up-The text in this abridgement is considerably shortened, but the language retains its original complexity. Helquist's illustrations complement the story nicely, and the movie tie-in may be an enticement for those not yet familiar with this classic. A short glossary helps with the most unfamiliar terms. This is not one to hand to reluctant readers, but it makes a nice bridge to the original.-Laurie Slagenwhite Walters, Peachtree Montessori International, Ann Arbor, MI (c) Copyright 2012.
