" Read with my son for school. I wouldn't call it thrilling but definitely a good overview of Napoleon's life. " said.

" The book, by H.E. Marshall (author of Our Island Story, another of our favorites), is a spirited, lively version of the major events of Napoleon’s life, reign, and downfall. If you’re looking for one book about Napoleon that is both informative and well-written, plus a living book not a dry history text, we’d recommend The Story of Napoleon.{Read more reviews of read alouds and books for kids (and adults!) on A Spirited Mind} " said.

"This was a relatively short read covering the life of Napoleon Bonaparte. For its shortness, however, it puts a decent amount of detail from his early years growing up, his interest in military things, education, initial military experience, his rise through the ranks to commander of the troops and eventually Emperor. He developed a loyal following among many of his troops and had many successful military campaigns until his final defeat at Waterloo. I had previously read a lengthy book focused just on the Battle of Waterloo but I chose this book because it helps put Napoleon's path through life in an easily understood perspective. I will have to read more at a later time. Great read for anyone who wants to have a quick understanding of Napoleon's successes and failures." said.

" 4 stars, keeping in mind this is written for children. Necessarily simplified, but the writing was not dumbed-down, and it held my interest. " said.

" A perfect example how little nerds grow up and take over the world...literally. Lesson one, DO NOT bully a nerd. Because one day, they will grow up and kick your ass. And that is exactly what he did. The Story of Shorty begins when he was a boy, talks about his rise to power, expeditions to Egypt, and Russia, talks about a few battles, and ends with his death. Cut and dry. 10 chapters total. Quick read. " said.
