    1. A perfect example how little nerds grow up and take over the worldterally. Lesson one, DO NOT bully a nerd. Because one day, they will grow up and kick your ass. And that is exactly what he did. The Story of Shorty begins when he was a boy, talks about his rise to power, expeditions to Egypt, and Russia, talks about a few battles, and ends with his death. Cut and dry. 10 chapters total. Quick read.

    2. I recentley had the great enjoyment of reading the book "The Story of Napoleon".

    3. The book, by H.E. Marshall (author of Our Island Story, another of our favorites), is a spirited, lively version of the major events of Napoleon’s life, reign, and downfall.

    4. While the book is slightly limited in it's targeting of English school children, we found H.E. Marshall's account a pleasure to read.

    5. Read with my son for school. I wouldn't call it thrilling but definitely a good overview of Napoleon's life.
