Reviews

Schlitz is a talented storyteller. Her language is forceful, and learning slips in on the sly.
--The New York Times

Bolstered by lively asides and unobtrusive notes, and illuminated by Byrd's stunningly atmospheric watercolors, [the monologues] bring to life a prototypical English village in 1255.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Brilliant in every way.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Outstanding.
--School Library Journal (starred review)

A vivid, convincing portrait of medieval adolescence.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

A rewarding choice for performance or for reading aloud in the classroom.
