Description - The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
"Graffex" is a series of illustrated literary classics retold for young readers. Young, brave and hot-headed, D'Artagnan arrives in Paris determined to become one of the king's elite musketeers. He manages to offend three of the bravest musketeers - Athos, Aramis and Porthos - but the four become firm friends nevertheless. Together they do battle against the English and the glamorous but deadly spy known as Milady. This is a companion volume to "The Man in the Iron Mask", already published in the "Graffex" series. The classic story is presented as an exciting and fast-paced graphic novel which remains faithful to Dumas' original text - unlike the many later film versions.Specially commissioned full-colour artwork brings excitement and atmosphere to this classic tale. Speech bubbles work with the main text to emphasise and enhance the retelling. There is a detailed timeline of important events during Dumas' lifetime. Information about Dumas' life and work - including a list of film and TV adaptations - is provided to encourage young readers to explore other works by this perennially popular author.
