Read a story about a disabled young hero finding courage in The Door in the Wall.

Title: The Door in the Wall
Author: Marguerite De Angeli
Ages: 12+
Rating: 5


Robin's father is a brave knight to the King of England and Robin knows that when he grows up he will be a knight too. But when he gets sick and loses the use of his legs suddenly he can't even stand. What can he do to prove himself to his King and his father?


Hero in the Making

The Newbery Medal-winning book, The Door in the Wall, tells the story of Robin and his adventures and friends as he adapts to his new life. From making friends with the kind monk Brother Luke and the minstrel John-go-in-the-Wynd, to fleeing from bandits and saving the great castle of Lindsay. Robin learns about what it really takes to be a hero.


Old School Tale

The first thing you'll notice about The Door in the Wall is that everybody talks strangely. They speak in old English and it sounds kind of like how the characters in The Lord of the Rings movies talk. It's also a very well-written book that'll keep you turning pages and will really get you thinking about Robin. There are even a few drawings by the author that show you what's going on in the story.


The Bottom Line

The Door in the Wall is a great book! It's a nice short read that's fun from start to end and is small enough that you can stick it in your pocket and take it when you go out.
