      A fascinating volume on the history of the Children s Crusade In actuality, there were TWO one led out of France, and one from Germany All of the zealotry ends very sadly once the French group reaches Marseilles, they are imprisoned sold as slaves by unscrupulous traders the German group mainly dies while trying to cross the Alps An interesting footnote the Pope at the time was OPPOSSED to this movement All in all, a very tragic tale which started off with hope religious idealism.

      As a fictional retelling of a surprisingly little known historical event, this book has almost biblical size It tells a great story, but at the same time there s that historical grit and realism It shocked me, yet inspired me at the same time The characters are well developed, the description was pretty good, as were the illustrations and even the action sequences were pretty exciting.

      OK story for teens, lots of action, could have been filled out into a book twice its length.
