Read in February, 2012

Matilda Bone is another great read by Cushman, but I did have a few problems with it. It is suppose to be for around sixth grade, but I found the book far too advanced for that age level. There is a lot of Latin in it and a lot of Medieval Catholicism to it. Matilda frequently talks to the Saints and they often answer her with smart-mouthed comments. I feel that this overt religious side, although perfect for the plot and time period, might be daunting to a younger reader.
