The Hunchback of Notre-Dame

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the dark world of medieval Paris, the deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame Cathedral heroically fights to save the life of a beautiful Gypsy girl about to be unjustly executed. Told with simple vocabulary and set in large type, this adaptation of the classic tale is perfectly suited for young readers.  

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:
