What on earth more could possibly be wriiten about those children? Olga was 23, I think, Alexei 14, hardly old enough to merit a biography.
On that note, a slim volume on Anastasia has been published.
I can understand a children's book, perhaps, but otherwise evrything about them has already been written.
Much like the silly bios that have come out since the Windsors princes were born it seems to me.
As a child of 8 or 9, I slogged through biographies written for adults about people I wanted to learn about because there were no biographies written about them for children.
I see your point about how much more can be written about them from an adult's perspective. Even from a scholar's perspective. As a history teacher, I am for any well written biographies written for children that will trigger their interest in history and even better, trigger their interest in learning.
Yes, there are some "silly bios" out there. I will agree with you on that one. Yet, at the same time, how silly is it if it creates just the desire to read? And that desire to read more leads them to learn more about history and some day, perhaps, creates a history teacher who passes along their love of history to a student?
