The Door in the Wall
Set in the 14th century, this is the classic story of one boy's personal heroism when he loses the use of his legs. "An enthralling and inspiring tale of triumph over handicap. Unusually beautiful illustrations, full of authentic detail, combine with the text to make life in England during Middle Ages come alive". ("The New York Times".) A Newbery Medal and Lewis Carroll Shelf Awards.
