Our young authors skilfully weave together fact and fiction to bring the events of the past alive, and relate them to their own lives and experiences. In the process we learn not only learn a little about historical events: in the weaving of the tales we also recognise the humanity and emotions of these people, separated from us only by dates and places.

    I was amazed at the fantastic writing that was produced by young people ages 10-13. I had to remind myself that these individuals are at the beginning of what I believe will be long and successful writing careers. The stories are all historical fiction and take place at significant time periods in human history, ranging from medieval times to the previous century. The stories are well-written and sometimes various authors alluded to the detailed research that was done during the writing. The sto I was amazed at the fantastic writing that was produced by young people ages 10-13. I had to remind myself that these individuals are at the beginning of what I believe will be long and successful writing careers. The stories are all historical fiction and take place at significant time periods in human history, ranging from medieval times to the previous century. The stories are well-written and sometimes various authors alluded to the detailed research that was done during the writing. The stories range in length from 3 to 10 pages and can be read in one sitting. The stories were not arranged in any discernible sequence. For the reader's sake it might have been preferable to organize the stories in historical chronology. A worthwhile read. Thank you to Library Thing and the Early Reviewers program for a copy of this book.
