MA in Children’s Literature

There’s something shocking about turning the story of Marie Antoinette into a children’s book. I mean you can’t tack on “a happily ever after” ending to the Queen of France. Nevertheless, some authors are working hard to make MA’s story PG. Would you read these to your kids?


Lynn Cullen’s Moi and Marie Antoinette tells the story of Marie Antoinette’s childhood – from the perspective of her pug.


Kathryn Lasky invents M.A.’s diary during her first year as dauphine of France in The Royal Diaries: Marie Antoinette: Princess of Versailles, Austria-France 1769.
