Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!
Voices from a Medieval Village

author: Laura Amy Schlitz
illustrator: Robert Byrd

Maidens, monks, and millersí sons -- in these pages, readers will meet them all. Thereís Hugo, the lordís nephew, forced to prove his manhood by hunting a wild boar; sharp-tongued Nelly, who supports her family by selling live eels; and the peasantís daughter, Mogg, who gets a clever lesson in how to save a cow from a greedy landlord. Thereís also mud-slinging Barbary (and her noble victim); Jack, the compassionate half-wit; Alice, the singing shepherdess; and many more. With a deep appreciation for the period and a grand affection for both characters and audience, Laura Amy Schlitz creates twenty-two riveting portraits and linguistic gems equally suited to silent reading or performance. Illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings by Robert Byrd -- inspired by the Munich-Nuremberg manuscript, an illuminated poem from thirteenth-century Germany -- this witty, historically accurate, and utterly human collection forms an exquisite bridge to the people and places of medieval England.

NEWBERY MEDAL WINNER! Step back to an English village in 1255, where life plays out in dramatic vignettes illuminating twenty-two unforgettable characters (age 10 and up).
