Product description

Eloise has always loved Joan of Arc. Noble, honest and brave, she was everything Eloise wishes to be. And on a bright sunny day in Orleans, Eloise has a very special daydream…

A superb re-imagining of Joan of Arc by master storyteller and author of War Horse.

“There was only one creature on this earth who really knew Joan. He was a sparrow, just an ordinary sparrow…He was her best friend on this earth, maybe her only friend, too.”

A young girl faces an impossible task – to save her beloved France from tyrants. To free her country, Joan will lose everyone she has ever loved. But she listens to her heart and believes in her calling.

Through patience, perseverance and unbreakable spirit, Joan of Arc leads armies to victory and finds the strength to face the cruellest of destinies.

    I really enjoyed this book, it was really good! I love Michael Morpurgo books, this book didn`t disappoint!. I liked this book because of the way that Michael Morpurgo describes the setting and character, I also love the fact that it starts off in modern France and moves into medieval France through the first couple of chapters and that the girl in modern France and Joan are very similar- similar appearance and both have a bird as pet! My favourite character is Eloise as she has an extreme devotion to Joan of Arc and even when she didn`t get the part of Joan in a parade, she still stayed strong! I rate this book 9/10, nobody could have told the story as good as Michael Morpurgo, nothing is missed out in the retelling and this is definitely a must read!
