Blurbs:
  • "…as bright and as vivid as the pictures in a Book of Hours. Deep scholarship, high imagination, and great gifts of storytelling have gone into this. I was spellbound." Philip Pullman
  • "This is truly a cross-over book, settling in the interesting space between children’s and adult fiction…These 100 tightly-written chapters of crisp dialogue and razor sharp detail bring the medieval world…crackling into life." The Times
  • "This is a must. Its structure makes it very accessible; and in beautifully spare, yet lyrical language, it’s a mysterious story that totally absorbs." Wendy Cooling, Literacy and Learning
