The French Revolution is in full swing and Paris is awash in fear and the blood of its own nobility. However, one mysterious man (some say phantom!) seems able to whisk away doomed nobles seemingly from under the very nose of the executioner - the infamous Scarlet Pimpernel. French official Chauvelin will stop at nothing to uncover the Scarlet Pimpernel's identity, including forcing the unwilling help of Marguerite Blakeney, French wife of England's richest and most foppish lord, Sir Percy Blakeney. In this world of intrigue, death, and danger, nothing is as it seems.

    Doesn't Suck the Joy Out

    Posted by Christy B. on 4th Aug 2016

    As an English major, I spent so much time in college analyzing books that they lost their joy--reading became a chore. I was afraid these studies would do the same, but they don't. The vocabulary lists are excellent, and the questions for discussing deeper truths are great conversation starters. My kids say they could have done without the comprehension questions, since they understood the story perfectly without we skipped them. I wouldn't use a study guide for every book we read, but I would use a guide a few times a year, especially the Progeny Press guides that help build character as they're expanding knowledge and familiarity with great literature. Thank you, Progeny Press!

    Scarlet Pimpernel

    Posted by Rebecca on 21st Jun 2016

    We used it for family discussion while reading the book aloud. The kids love that the vocabulary words are in order of appearance. I tell them the next word to listen for and it's a game to see who is the first to spot it. The discussion questions are terrific especially those that tie into the Bible and evaluate the character's attitudes and actions in light of Biblical principles.
