Marguerite Makes a Book

By Bruce Robertson
Picture Books

My eight-year-old daughter fell in love with this book and has read it several times. It tells the fictional story of a young girl named Marguerite who lives in Paris in the 1400s. She helps her father, Jacques, in illuminating manuscripts for the nobility of France. The illustrations are wonderful.
