    " i thought this book was confusing at most parts, but i enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 1/15/2014

    " I didn't think I'd like this book, but I really did and made me interested in learing more about life in Wales. I recommend this. It won a Newberry in the 50s. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonny | 1/6/2014

    " This is an enjoyable Young Adult book about growing up. I also gained great insight into the climate, landscape and history of Wales. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah Bruce | 1/4/2014

    " I wish that the mythological elements had been a little more pervasive, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Welsh setting! Definitely gave me a feel for Wales. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 1/2/2014

    " I decided this was too mystical for the private children's library that I run. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 danielle | 12/30/2013

    " When I want to win a Newberry medal (I'd settle for an Honor), I will write about Welsh mythology. Seriously, those voters LOVE Welsh myths. My problem with this one is that it suffered in comparison to Lloyd Alexander and Susan Cooper (and even Tolkian). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benji Martin | 12/8/2013

    " This book might be my favorite book at the moment. It is great. That's all I will say for now, because I can't do it justice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen Ramsey | 11/27/2013

    " Just reread this book and enjoyed it thoroughly! I found the family story and the relationship of Peter and his two siblings Jen and Becky just as interesting as the magic in the Taliesen part of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dyan Phillips | 11/9/2013

    " This was one of my favorite books from childhood and I re-read it often. Time travel was always one of my favorite themes as a child. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 10/15/2013

    " This is one of my favorites. I love how the author combines real life issues with fantasy. A definite must read. After you read it, you'll know why the author is a newberry award winner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shani Hilton | 9/6/2013

    " Not quite as magical as it was when I read it as a child. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 8/24/2013

    " A great book for Celtic history fans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mia | 7/26/2013

    " I didn't love this book, but I didn't hate it either. I think it was just ok. People who like realistic fiction and historical stuff should read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yogamom | 6/10/2013

    " Great story to spark the imagination. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 5/23/2013

    " It has some stuff that makes me think hard. It's very good and suspensful "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terry | 1/2/2013

    " Interesting twist on a coming-of-age novel combined with an excursion into Welsh history and lore. Ethics and relationships are central to the development and resolution of the plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 8/26/2012

    " I remember starting to read this in my 7th grade English class, but don't remember ever finishing it, until now! Really good. The fantasy elements are so understated compared to what's out there now (like Harry Potter, for example), but I love the character development of the three children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isabel | 5/6/2012

    " I read this a long time ago and all I remember is that I really liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jambush | 3/29/2012

    " It took me a while to read this one. It's not fast-paced, and all the Welsh history, geography, mythology was new to me, so I took my time reading it (and had to go back from time to time to remember details). I felt like I learned a lot and enjoyed the twist at the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachael | 1/31/2012

    " I didn't really understand this book, but then again I was really young when we listened to it on tape. All I know is that it was very confusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janis Ian | 12/29/2011

    " I can't really explain why I come back to this book every couple of years, but I do... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth S | 8/3/2011

    " kids' book a friend recommended "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 TJ | 7/29/2011

    " This book was delightful from beginning to end. It had 'a very strong sense of place', as a friend who recommended to me noted. It made me want to go to Wales and find an ancient and magical artifact; or more practically, to learn more about Welsh history :-) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Toni | 7/19/2011

    " Now just wasn't the right time for me to read this. I bought it when I was twelve and thought I would enjoy it eleven years later. I didn't. Guess my tastes haven't really changed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine Mustread | 5/25/2011

    " Magic and mythology, set in Wales. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 12/9/2010

    " I read this a very long time ago, but I remember it being unbearably slow in the beginning and the suspense that did come up wasn't even that suspenseful. It was hard to force myself to keep reading this book and actually finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 11/21/2010

    " Just reread this book and enjoyed it thoroughly! I found the family story and the relationship of Peter and his two siblings Jen and Becky just as interesting as the magic in the Taliesen part of the story. "
