Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Will capture readers' imaginations and hearts." —VOYA To Blood and Bone Alley, home of leech, barber-surgeon, and apothecary, comes Matilda, raised by a priest to be pious and learned, and now destined to assist Red Peg the Bonesetter. Matilda is appalled by the worldliness of her new surroundings and yearns for the days at the manor when all she did was study and pray. Filled with the witty dialogue and richly authentic detail that Karen Cushman's work is known for, Matilda Bone is a compelling comic novel about a girl who learns to see herself and others clearly, to laugh, and to live contentedly in this world.

Synopsis:

Inspired by an illuminated poem from 13th-century Germany, this witty, historically accurate collection--the winner of the 2008 Newbery Medal--forms an exquisite bridge to the people and places of medieval England. Full color.

Synopsis:

Another winning medieval era novel with an incomparable heroine by the Newbery medalist Karen Cushman. With witty dialogue and richly authentic detail, Cushman tells the story of a girl who is transported from her days of study and prayer at the manor to become a bonesetter's assistant in the slums of an English village.
