Staff Reviews

"Kate DiCamillo turns to historically influenced fantasy with her latest book about a mysterious child, Beatryce, who had been left with the monks of the Chronicles of Sorrowing as a baby. She knows nothing of where she came from except for her name. Of course, this means she knows nothing about a particularly ominous prophecy of which she may be the subject. Follow Beatryce and Answelica, her goat sidekick, as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Sophie Blackall’s illustrations are absolutely gorgeous and complement the medieval aesthetic of the setting. The book itself is beautifully produced with elegant drop caps as if you were reading an illuminated manuscript."--Reviewed by Cristina

“Kate DiCamillo weaves a medieval tale that reads like a classic fable. This ode to stories will leave readers feeling comforted, like they are securely holding onto the ear of a beloved goat.”
— Julie Jarema, Avid Bookshop, Athens, GA


From two-time Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo comes a fantastical meditation on fate, love, and the power of words to spell the world.

We shall all, in the end, be led to where we belong. We shall all, in the end, find our way home.

In a time of war, a mysterious child appears at the monastery of the Order of the Chronicles of Sorrowing. Gentle Brother Edik finds the girl, Beatryce, curled in a stall, wracked with fever, coated in dirt and blood, and holding fast to the ear of Answelica the goat. As the monk nurses Beatryce to health, he uncovers her dangerous secret, one that imperils them all—for the king of the land seeks just such a girl, and Brother Edik, who penned the prophecy himself, knows why.

And so it is that a girl with a head full of stories—powerful tales-within-the-tale of queens and kings, mermaids and wolves—ventures into a dark wood in search of the castle of one who wishes her dead. But Beatryce knows that, should she lose her way, those who love her—a wild-eyed monk, a man who had once been king, a boy with a terrible sword, and a goat with a head as hard as stone—will never give up searching for her, and to know this is to know everything.
