The Inquisitor's Tale
This was a really ambitious tale and as an adult I enjoyed it. It reminded me of The Canterbury Tales. I liked the interplay of African boy, peasant girl, Jewish boy, and dog. I liked the references to culture and religion of the time period. But will students??? The cover looks kind of young but I know my 4th and 5th graders would not appreciate it. A sophisticated 6th - 8th grader might enjoy this but will the cover turn them off before they delve in? Love the research and story but not sure if it will find its intended audience.
