If you want to read about a historic event or figure in a fun way you should check out the Magic Tree House series. The library has just received more books from the series and the ones at the Salmon Arm Branch are really great.
I think its awesome for you to read about historical events in books like this, especially if you are learning about the true history in school or for fun. Try getting a nonfiction (book with facts) on the same topic as the novel.
