"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.”
