Seldom does a child's book make a political struggle or controversy simple enough for a child to understand; in this instance, that there were forces beyond the average peasant's control to keep safe their heroine; their would be deliverer. By simply including the names of the countries and political figures, and the length by number of years, of the conflict, the book elicited sympathy for a tired Monarchial government. And sympathy for both the people's and their government's need to accept no defeat. Its one of few true stories I myself know of that can mend bridges and motivate children to move for peace, brotherhood of man and individuality of nations.
