The Minstrel in the Tower
The back of this book reads: “It is the year 1195. Roger and Alice have lost their father to the Crusades, and now their mother is terribly ill. They set off in search of their mother’s long-lost brother, who is a powerful baron who might help them.” This 64-page historical fiction book has an elevated vocabulary, good messages, and high educational value. Extra sensitive children may want to avoid this book due to a mean uncle and the kidnapping of the children by two highwaymen.
