    The Royal Diaries series is very hit or miss being written by many different authors and sometimes telling about historical figures about whom little is known But Kathryn Lasky has definitely produced the most consistently good books in the series and for me Marie Antoinette Princess of Versailles has always been a favorite It still holds up

I look up now into the oval mirror and see barely a trace of the mud splattered girl tearing through the woodland on her horse or the barefoot girl wading at Schonbrunn I have become what Mama set out for me to be Majestic A Dauphine and eventually a ueen So writes the headstrong 13 year old Maria Antonia future ueen of France in her diary on October 23 1769 In this engrossing addition to the Royal Diaries series Elizabeth I Red Rose of the House of Tudor Cleopatra VII Daughter of the Nile Kathryn Lasky invents a diary of the young Marie Antoinette in 1769 the year she is to be married off to Dauphin. Aha I loved this book when I was ten or eleven when it came out I thought it was wonderful and I loved the cover art okay so I still do look at the detail on the back of the gown Ahh and the golden pages and the historical details at the end I was a history nut even then And I went bonkers with the whole Pardon me Monsieur I did not mean to do it line I remember reading that to my dad and him being uite unimpressed I don t remember much about the actual story but I loved the end of itLooking back I m glad my childhood self didn t enjoy the whole story so much There s a heap of historical inaccuracies and Lasky even admits she added fictional aspects to the story In some ways this could be a good thing It makes children likely to read it and interested in history That can t be a bad thing However it gives children an inaccurate view of history and I remember being eleven years old and huffy with my father for pointing out that some things were wrong with the story I do like some things Lasky has done though by making Marie Antoinette just a very sheltered young girl who has no idea what s going on in the world around her Both her and Louis were naive children who had no idea what the real world was and were naturally unfit to be King and ueen of France It s a fun read but if given to a child the inaccuracies should be explained

Characters Marie Antoinette Princess of Versailles Austria France 1769

Ulous customs Marie an opinionated and insightful young woman mocks the court of impeccable etiuette and manners that makes up nasty rhymes about those they hate but panics when her hair is mussed Lasky has done an excellent job of creating a very human character in the young Marie Antoinette one whom young readers will want to learn about Fortunately her story is given plenty of context with an epilogue describing the history of the young ueen after 1769 a historical note offering an 18th century context a Habsburg Bourbon family tree and various portraits of the royal family Ages 9 to 13 Karin Snels. I liked the book it was extremely interesting I love the writer s words I would like to know about her children after her execution I can t wait to read Mary ueen of Scotland I think it was insane to be married at 13 In my opinion she wouldn t have been executed if she had been older and wiser It s sad I don t really think she meant to be the way she was she was just to young to help run France
