Review quote

PRAISE FOR THE CROWFIELD CURSE *"A wondrous mystery. Walsh described the environment with calm sensory detail, giving readers a palpably damp, frigid winter. Understatedly tender and mystical yet solid." -- Kirkus, starred review *"Suspenseful and spooky. With fascinating attention to detail and an edgy battle between evil and good, Walsh sweeps readers almost effortlessly into another time and place. By the close of the novel, readers are hoping for more, and the ending suggests that more is to come. " -- School Library Journal, starred review "Walsh writes with a sure and steady hand, deftly blending the historical details of medieval monastery life with the magical elements of the mythical supernatural creatures. The hob, with his unintentional wit and well-timed comic relief, is the true standout of the cast. The growing tension will compel young readers toward the climactic battle in the woods and its terrifying conclusion." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Dotted with evil curses, dead angels, and dark places. Walsh expertly mixes the fantastical with the humdrum necessities of medieval life." -- Booklist *Includes a timetable of daily life in the abbey and a glossary of monastic terms *Plus a sneak peek at the sequel THE CROWFIELD DEMON! A 2011 USBBY Outstanding International Book New York Public Library's "100 Titles for Reading and Sharing" Kirkus "Best Book of the Year" ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------*THE CROWFIELD CURSEAuthor: Walsh, PatIn 1347 at a country monastery, a wondrous mystery unfolds.
