The Scarlet Pimpernel is the first novel in a series of historical fiction by Baroness Orczy, The novel is set during the Reign of Terror following the fthe French Revolution. The title is the nom de guerre of its hero and protagonist, a chivalrous Englishman who rescues aristocrats before they are sent to the guillotine.

The band of gentlemen who assist him are the only ones who know his secret identity. He is known by his symbol, a simple flower, the scarlet pimpernel. Opening at the New Theatre in London's West End on January 5, 1905, the play became a favourite of British audiences, eventually playing more than 2,000 performances.

"I cannot imagine this book included in the Everyman's Library Childrens' Classics, but it is!! along with Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, etc. I suppose for older children, it certainly has suspense and mystery. I certainly enjoyed it. "

    " I love the adventure and romance. The second time through I started to catch Orczy's tongue-in-cheek toward her heroine. I hadn't realized the first time through how DRAMATIC everything is for Marguerite. Fun! "

    " They seek there, They seek him here - refrain throughout the book - I cannot remember all the titles that I read but best in adventure reading. "

    " This is the best book based in the French Revolution I have ever read. To me it explained why the French citizens hated their nobles. And you can't help but love the league of the scarlet pimpernel and Sir Percy's ingenuity! "

    " Good adventure, so-so writing. Especially choppy start, but it smoothed out a few chapters in. I think my girls (the 10yo & 7yo) will enjoy it. "
