Description

Newbery medalist Karen Cushman assembles a cast of unforgettable characters in a fascinating and pungent setting: the medical quarter of a medieval English Village. To Blood and Bone Alley, home of leech, barber-surgeon, and apothecary, comes Matilda, raised by a priest to be pious and learned, and now destined to assist Red Peg the Bonesetter. To Matildas dismay, her work will not involve Latin or writing, but lighting the fire, going to market, mixing plasters and poultices, and helping Peg treat patients. Appalled by her new surroundings, Matilda yearns for the days at the manor when all she did was study and pray. Lonely and misunderstood, she seems destined for a fate as tragic as that of any of the sharp-toungued saints she turns to for advice.

Filled with a witty dialogue, Matilda Bone is a compelling comic novel about a girl who learns to see herself and others clearly, to laugh, and to live contentedly in this world.

    Listened to this in the car with the kids. It was perfect because we just happened to be studying this time in history for our homeschool. It had lots of interesting historical tidbits, and I think it was my eight year old's first experience with an unsympathetic/unlikeable main character. Luckily, Matilda becomes likeable by the end of the book, but her self-righteous attitude at the beginning really had my daughter up in arms.

    We'll never forget "Saliva mucusque!"
