Fun story, our large brood of kids all enjoyed it! Satisfying ending and great historical details. Daniel’s native friend Netop had his bum basically hanging out in the pictures. This gave everyone a good laugh and has become a running joke in our family.
This was a fun book that opened up some good discussion with my boys about early American settlers in general and the French Huguenots in particular. My nine year old enjoyed this one right along with me.
What a great book! We have struggled to find good AND entertaining books for my 12 year old son, but this book was one we couldn’t put down. There is mystery, suspense, and a great moral lesson.
What a great story about two boys from different backgrounds befriending one another and helping each other through some hard trials. My boys 11-13 both loved it!
A good read that has historical value while teaching the importance of friendship and doing what’s right. A good reminder that people are more the same than different. My children 3 through 12 enjoyed this book.
Fallen twigs and branches crackled beneath his feet. Animals scurried away, frightened by the noise of the running. Occasionally a vine slapped his face, but he only laughed and ran on effortlessly.
He had a friend his own age. He had not known such joy as filled his heart now since the days in France before the king’s soldiers came and made life unbearable for the French Huguenots.
Daniel Chapelier and his family have traveled from France to England to America, fleeing religious persecution and seeking land to call their own. When they finally settle in the colony of Rhode Island, they hope their trials are over. All is well until their English neighbors start making trouble. Can Daniel and his new Indian friend, Netop, find a way to keep the peace between the angry settlers?
