New York Times best-selling author Eva Ibbotson based much of this enthralling tale on her own experiences at boarding school.

In the Dragonfly Pool, in 1939 Europe, Tally is apprehensive about attending Delderton, for she has many fears about boarding school. But Delderton proves to be a wonderful place after all, even allowing her to form her own dance troupe. She also makes fast friends with Karil, a crown prince. But then Karil's father is assassinated, and Tally vows to help her friend escape from the Nazis. Download and start listening now!

    " I loved this! It put me in mind of The Penderwicks- just a wonderfully happy vibe, even with some less than happy topics. "

    " Written by the same author as Journey to the River Sea, this book explores the very different lives of children during the days before World War II. It tells an adventure story, where a group of children from a progressive school in England travel for a cultural dance festival in Bergania, and subsequently help the overthrown Berganian prince escape after his father, the king, is assassinated by the Nazis. While I would have liked to see more historical facts and details in the storytelling, I concede that this really was not the point of the story. The main theme appears to be how we need to work at discovering who we really are, and we have the duty to both respect our families and discover our own paths. This book also made me think about the Best Practices ideals of teaching, as the Delderton Hall school allowed its students to discover their own paths through interactive, hands-on, and meaningful activities. Overall, this book would be useful as a read-aloud or as a resource for exploring different methods of instruction. "
