About this title

Synopsis:

The Little Duke is a story of one boy's courage in tenth century France. Richard's father has been assassinated, making him the Duke of Normandy before he has turned ten years old. He is taken to the court of King Louis, where he is looked after as a vassal - but is ultimately a prisoner. With only his squire Osmond de Centeville as his ally, the young Duke must negotiate the political and social ¬¬¬maze of the French court, learning how to survive and, if he can, escape! Based on the real-life story of William the Conqueror's great-grandfather, this exciting book will entertain children and adults alike.

About the Author:

Charlotte Mary Yonge (1823–1901), was an English novelist, known for her huge output, now mostly out of print. She began writing in 1848, and published during her long life about 160 works, chiefly novels. Her first commercial success, The Heir of Redclyffe (1853), provided the funding to enable the schooner Southern Cross to be put into service on behalf of George Selwyn. Similar charitable works were done with the profits from later novels. Yonge was also a founder and editor for forty years of The Monthly Packet, a magazine (founded in 1851) with a varied readership, but targeted at British Anglican girls (in later years it was addressed to a somewhat wider readership). Among the best known of her works are The Heir of Redclyffe, Heartsease, and The Daisy Chain. A Book of Golden Deeds is a collection of true stories of courage and self-sacrifice. She also wrote Cameos from English History, Life of John Coleridge Patteson: Missionary Bishop of the Melanesian Islands and Hannah More. Her History of Christian Names was described as "the first serious attempt at tackling the subject" and as the standard work on names in the preface to the first edition of Withycombe's The Oxford Dictionary of English Christian Names, 1944. Her personal example and influence on her god-daughter, Alice Mary Coleridge, played a formative role in Coleridge's zeal for women's education and thus, indirectly, led to the foundation of Abbots Bromley School for Girls. After her death, her friend, assistant and collaborator, Christabel Coleridge, published the biographical Charlotte Mary Yonge: her Life and Letters (1903).
