A boy who can talk to animals, a perilous journey full of bravery and daring, meeting knights and bandits, ghosts and thieves—not to mention howling wolves, heroic donkeys, and a bag of bones. This 2018 Newbery Honor Book for readers 8 to 12 has all these things, as it follows a young outcast named Boy through medieval Europe, assisting a strange pilgrim named Secondus on a quest to find the seven holy relics of Saint Peter. Boy hopes the saint will bless him and heal his misshapen body—but he soon sees Secondus's mission is not a pious one. This is a lovely edition, with deckle edged cream pages and illustrated chapter headings like ancient woodcuts.
