By Laura Amy Schlitz. With this Newbery Medal-winning book, students can step into an English village in 1255 where life plays out in witty, dramatic vignettes illuminating 22 unforgettable characters. Among the cast are the lord’s nephew Hugo, who must hunt a wild boar to prove his manhood, and sharp-tongued Nelly, who supports her family by selling live eels. With a deep affection for the period and a fondness for both audience and characters, the author creates riveting portraits and linguistic gems suited to both silent reading and performance. Illustrated with colorful pen-and-ink drawings by Robert Byrd, this historically accurate collection forms a lively bridge to the people and places of medieval England. Grades 5–10. Bibliography. 7" x 10". Candlewick. 85 pages. ©2007.
