A perennial favorite, this work continues to hold appeal for adventure lovers. Full of intrigue, swordplay, and revenge, it is the story of d'Artagnan, a young nobleman who travels to Paris in hopes of joining the Musketeers, a group of swashbuckling adventurers who serve King Louis XIII. His wit and fighting ability make d'Artagnan a welcome addition to their ranks, and together the four young men work to foil the King's evil rival, Cardinal Richelieu.

When a hot-blooded yound d'Artagnan comes to Paris to seek his fortune, he finds himself challenged to a duel with not one, but three of the king's musketeers. And if you have ever watched the movie you know how it flows from there.

I like this version because it maintains the poetic tone in which the original was written but wording is shifted slightly so that younger readers can understand it. I also appreciate that it has a bigger font.

It's a classic and my 6 year old is enjoying it more than the movie.
