The Hunchback of Notre-Dame: Hardcover

USD $6.95

Set in a richly rendered 15th century Paris, Victor Hugo’s powerful drama focuses on a beautiful gypsy girl named Esmeralda, the two men (including an obsessed and manipulative priest) who love her, and the pitiful hunchback Quasimodo who tries to save her. With this simplified yet spellbinding version, kids can enjoy all the excitement of Hugo’s masterful story. This goes well with the seventh grade Middle Ages and Medieval blocks where we explore castles and cathedrals.

“The books have won the praise of a number of educators. Peggy Charren, a visiting scholar at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, an advocate for higher-quality children’s media, and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, said she has read several [and states] ‘they’re terrific.’”—The Wall Street Journal.
 
“Where abridgements are useful in introducing literature to grade-schoolers not equipped to handle the real thing, books in this series will fill the bill.”—Booklist.
 
“Large print, short chapters, and an abundance of white space provide an attractive, more-accessible option for readers who are not ready to handle the originals.”—School Library Journal
