    " I really enjoyed this. It gave you a real feeling for life during medieval times. I also liked how each story was written to be performed as a monologue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy N | 2/9/2014

    " An excellent means of giving voice to and learning about the normalcies of a medieval village character by character, child by child. The illustrations also give it a classic 'Book of Days' feeling. What a wonderful idea for the basis of a school play! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamlynn | 2/5/2014

    " More appropriate for older children 10-15 probably. Again we listened to the audio cd, and the background music and actor's voices added greatly to the experience. Experiences and lifestyles of the Medieval times are not sugar-coated, and several of the monologes were quite touching. "

    " this book was okay. ive read better "dialouge" books before :D "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greta | 1/20/2014

    " I figured it was about time I read the Newbery Winner from last year. I was impressed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 H.J. Swinford | 1/19/2014

    " Entertaining, accurate and straightforward. I love an author (and school teacher) who tells us like it is. This collection of monologues and dialogs gives us a first-person account of every class of person during the medieval period. The poetry was catchy and well constructed and the prose was touching and real. I loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathyred | 1/14/2014

    " Excellent resource for those students covering the middle ages. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rodney Ross | 1/3/2014

    " i get why it won the newbery but i don't agree "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 11/8/2013

    " This book is the Newbery Medal winner for 2007. It is quite an unusual book, but it was fun to read. The closest thing I can compare it to is if Shakespeare were to have written monologues and dialogues for one or two children. Packed with facts and information about life in a medieval village. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keri-Lynn | 11/5/2013

    " Excellent book of short monologues and dialogues that were originally written for middle school students, but if fun for everyone. Quick read with lots of interesting "tidbits". The 4 pages of bibliography for such a short book proves the author did her homework. Very accurate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 R | 10/19/2013

    " I expected this to be terrible because of all the backlash I've heard, but I found it to be quite excellent. I mean, when you've got a monologue called "Nelly the Sniggler" you really can't go wrong. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 10/18/2013

    " One of those books you just can't put down. This book has well thought out characters and a great plot. Its like looking back in time and seeing life through the characters eyes a truely wonderful book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aubrey B | 10/16/2013

    " Interesting, but I could never see myself acting out an of these(I'm a actor). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly Blaisdell | 10/11/2013

    " I like the voice here. I thought this really felt like a peek into the Medieval Village, but I wanted to be more connected to the characters. A solid read, but not one of my all time favs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 8/6/2013

    " If you know anything about medievel time you will marvel at how deftly this book is written. If you don't know much about medieval times, this will give you a good taste about how things really were. I loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cstrand | 3/14/2013

    " This book is interesting but I think it will take a master sales-librarian to get kids to read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 10/11/2012

    " Clever and informative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 7/29/2012

    " Wow, a quick glance through this book has me hooked! I particularly love the fact that the book was written as 17 short monologues for children. How cool would it be to stage a performance of classmates, neighbors or a scout troop? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Etta Mcquade | 1/20/2012

    " This is a delightful, educational, fun book. The vignettes can be acted out by individual students. I can see an elementary teacher using this book to great advantage in teaching students about the Middle Ages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 12/21/2011

    " Another Newbery that I just loved. It was short and left me wanting to get to know the characters more. I loved the monologues and the perspective they gave on live in medieval village but I also enjoyed reading all the asides that gave more background and insight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 9/24/2011

    " This was an entertaining and educational book on Medieval life from a child's perspective. Very clever and poetic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele Farley | 7/29/2011

    " I loved the format of this book, but I still can't decide on whether it was deserving of the Newbery Award "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melinda | 5/10/2011

    " This is one clever book - I loved that Schlitz, a librarian, created each of the 17 monologues for her students to perform. I listened to this book and loved how interesting each character was. This would be such a wonderful reference for any class studying the Middle Ages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joenna | 11/16/2010

    " Excellent excellent! I read this book very quickly but all stories were so entertaining and different from each other. Each character she created was fantastic. Well worth the Newbery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs. | 10/7/2010

    " This book contains 22 short readers theaters set in a English village in 1255. The scripts very from the rich to the poor, to the humors to the more serious. Because of the setting I think this book is a difficult read for most elementary readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marivel Rangel | 12/20/2009

    " each character relates to the others and the added background of historical facts gives realism to all the fictional characters "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 10/23/2009

    " I really enjoyed the peak into the different lives in medieval ages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 8/21/2009

    " Vivid and muscular! This is not a sweetness and light version of the Middle Ages, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wanted it to be longer! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginger | 6/14/2009

    " well crafted dramtic monologues of medieval characters "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katielibrary | 5/9/2009

    " This was an interesting look into the medieval time period. I especially liked the factual side notes that accompanied the first person play writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Missmath144 | 1/19/2009

    " 17 3-minute monologues written by a school librarian for students who were studying the Middle Ages. I particularly enjoyed it because I had just finished reading Pillars of the Earth, which takes place in the Middle Ages. "
