I'm not sure I could recommend this to any but the most earnest of children but I did enjoy reading this winner of the 1929 Newbery Award. The story takes place in medieval Krakow, and blends history with the fantastical story of a philosopher's stone and the family dedicated to its care. It's told with just the right amount of tension but perhaps too much detail for the modern reader.
