Title: Captain Rosalie

Captain Rosalie is the heartbreaking story of one girl’s experience of World War I. It is told from a 5 year old’s point of view and it was originally a short story, now expanded to a very short novel by brilliant illustrator Isabelle Arsenault. But don’t be fooled. Although the text is short & simple and the protagonist is young, this is a war novel appropriate for ages 10 – 14 year olds. Adults smart enough to listen to a child’s voice will not be disappointed. Devastating.



Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
