    "While not a beginners intro to French, I was taught that watching something with foreign subtitles can be a great learning tool when trying to learn a foreign language. Children's books would fall into that category, and as a fan of fantasy novels in my native tongue, this would be fun to try and learn. "

    "I was searching for a book written in French to read after completing a semester of French class. I wanted a book that was more in a genre that I typically enjoy (fantasy and fiction) and not about history, like the books presented to us in class. This book did not disappoint! I feel like it had a great story line and helped to increase my understanding of the French language. "

    "It is a shocking book that showed me the details of the German occupation in France, gave me a more complete view of the history and how the French government adopted a series of laws to the detriment of French and foreign Jews, but also showed me the other luminous aspect of human beings in favor of other human beings."
