The Inquisitor's Tale: Or, the Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog - Adam Gidwitz, Hatem Aly

Staff Pick

A group of travelers staying at the same inn amuse themselves by telling each other stories about three very special children and their supposedly resurrected greyhound. Little do the raconteurs know that the man quietly listening to their tales is on a mission for King Louis of France, who is waging a crusade. The Inquisitor’s Tale: Or, The Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog (Dutton, $17.99) imparts stories of miracles, dragons, religion, and more to reveal a mysterious world “full of wonders—and endlessly maddening,” but always amazing. Although younger readers may miss the echoes of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, they will be engrossed by Adam Gidwitz’s clever presentation of the Middle Ages. Hatem Aly’s illustrations evoke illuminated manuscripts and enhance this striking and satisfying adventure. Ages 11-14.
