বইটা আমার মোটেই ভালো লাগেনি। মোটামুটি বিরক্তিকর ভঙ্গিতে লেখা। বিষয়বস্তুর জন্য একটা অতিরিক্ত তারা।

ক্রুসেডের সময়কাল। ১২১২। ফ্রান্সের স্টিফেন আর জার্মানির নিকোলাস কি এক অলৌকিক আদেশ পেল আর বাচ্চাদের উত্তেজিত করে ফেলল। বাচ্চারা দলে দলে প্যালেসটাইনের দিকে চলে যেতে লাগল পবিত্র ভূমি উদ্ধারে।

হ্যামিলনের বাঁশিওয়ালা গল্পটা কে লিখেছে তা জানা যায় না। গল্পের আড়ালের অনেকগুলো ঘটনার মধ্যে Children's Crusade একটা বলে মনে করা হয়। (সূত্রঃ লাল মৃত্যু)
