The Door in the Wall

Written by Marguerite de Angeli

Reviewed by Casey Z. (age 10)

Robin gets struck by a terrible plague, making his legs weaken by the hour. Desperate to find someone who can help him, a monk named Brother Luke comes and tells him, "Thou hast only to follow the wall far enough and there will be a door in it". So now Robin is on a journey that will change his life.

This was a good book because Robin could not run like the others. This book decribes me because I broke my arm and could not do things I used to be able to do. Robin changed from being a sick person that could not walk to being a person that could walk with crutches. Finally he could be like the others. My favorite character was Brother Luke because he has faith in Robin.

This was a good book because there was always suspense on every page. I think anyone in grades 5 through 7 would like this book because there were somes words from the medieval times. I think that boys who have an imagination would like this book. Read this book and go on a journey you'll never forget.
