    One thought on “The Door in the Wall”

    1. Straightforward children s fiction about Medieval life, resilience, and finding ways to cope with loss and overcoming fears The motto of the book is in the title if you walk along a wall long enough, you will find a door to a new life.The young main character must learn to find new doors to open when he has to face the bitter fact that he is unable to use his legs His future as a knight is in jeopardy A kind monk helps him to understand that using his mind and learning to read will carry him eve [...]

    2. A lovely story, simply yet eloquently written with a beautiful message.We all have walls in our lives but the Lord always provides a door.

    3. I love a story with a wealth of meaning behind its words This one is exemplary Within, young Robyn s father has left for the Scottish wars, his mother has gone to wait on the ailing queen, and Robyn awaits John the Fletcher who will escort him to the manor of Sir Peter where Robyn will serve as squire But Robyn takes ill and loses the use of his legs, John the Fletcher never arrives, and the servants flee for fear of the plague that rages through London.A monk named Brother Luke carries Robyn to [...]

    4. This is a sweet and simple story of triumph over adversity in a time when answers to illness were rare, wars were plenty and commitment to duty often meant great sacrifice Lots of hard lessons for a ten year old to learn in any time period and in any culture, but Robin learns his lessons well and in believable ways The author is almost prosaic in her use of language as the story flows with a lovely rhythm and meter throughout Robin s adventures Her mastery of the medieval language structure and [...]

    5. I had to read this and do a book report on it in 5th grade approximately I remember it being the most dry, torturous book I d read up to that point I wonder what I d think of it now

    6. HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE To clarifyHATED IT Ok so I was willingtally willing to give this dumb book a chance, what do I get THIS The kid got sick and because in that time there were very little cures for anything, especially serious illnesses, the kid is now a cripple He is a brat The book clearly states that I can t remember whether directly or indirectly But ANYHOW he is such a brat that he scares away anybody and everybody willing to help him or care for himOh yha and his parents are importan [...]

    7. I just picked this up to reread for the first time since childhood, and found it didn t live up to my memories for one thing, I found it quite stilted this time around but I m keeping it at four stars for how much I liked it at the time Back then, I thought the book was lovely and wise I also thought that pretty much anything with a Medieval setting was inherently good, and even this time around I enjoyed the parts about the monastery, and learning to read, whittle and swim against a background [...]

    8. The kids and I read this very slowly over several months as part of one of our homeschool co ops group read alouds Yes, I ll admit it, I cried at the end and the kids all laughed at me BUT I did see one of my boys wiping away some tears too Written in 1949, this sweet story tells the tale of Robin, son of nobleman Sir John de Bureford From Ever since he can remember, has been told what is expected of him as the son of a nobleman He must learn the ways of knighthood But Robin s destiny is changed [...]

    9. Huh Most old award winners are different from modern books, but interesting anyway This one, I can see why it didn t fly with those kids today A somewhat wooden set of characters, lots of moral lessons, and odd perhaps inaccurate historical detail never let anyone tell you history doesn t change I spent most of the read trying to decide what was really wrong with Robin polio and enjoying the illustrations I have liked other books by deAngeli but I m not sure what made this deserve the 1950 Newbe [...]

    10. I read this aloud with my son Andrew for his summer reading list The language took some getting used to, but we loved the themes of this book Knowing and loving someone with a physical disability made the message even pertinent Highly recommend When you come up against a impenetrable wall, you only need search for the door that will enable you to pass through it.

    11. I didn t quite understand why this merited a Newbery Medal, but maybe the pickings were slim that year The story, about a young boy living in medieval England who loses the use of his legs and is helped by monks until his parents come back from their courtly duties, reminded me of this comic strip

    12. This book felt so authentically English, that I was surprised to find that the author is American and never lived in Britain It s a simple tale and much could have been done with it, but its value lies in the vocabulary and ambiance, than the plot and characters Worthy having on the shelf, but not a favorite Also, some of the covers of certain editions look rather ridiculous, farcical than anything, so don t let those deceive you into thinking this is anything other than a genuine English sto [...]

    13. Read this one for my Newberry book discussion group Loved the setting, and the story about a young boy overcoming difficult times including separation from family, war, and a life changing illness.

    14. I wanted to like this than I did, but found I just couldn t click the 3 star button The characters were all right, but I didn t find the story very engaging, there were hardly any female characters, and it was a bit message heavy As far as boy in medieval times Newbery winners go I preferred ADAM OF THE ROAD.

    15. 1950 Newbery Winner I liked this than other Newberys set in the middle ages I liked the writing in Good Masters but this was much pleasant overall for kids and had less death and sufferingybe it s not as true to the experience of living during that time but it s a good story to get kids interested in Medieval England I d have them read this before Good Masters The weather was neither rainy nor fair, neither hot nor cold, but somewhere in between, as English weather is like to be, said the fri [...]

    16. A decent story, I suppose But it is so torturously slow paced that my mind wandered off so many times that I can t keep track of them all I was left with many questions at the end What sickness did Robin have Why did he of all people go out to get help for the war Why did it have to have such a cutesy wrapped, unrealistic ending The medieval language is terrifyingly accurate, and the pencil illustrations are gorgeous But unless you really love slow paced stories or medieval history, I wouldn t r [...]

    17. Another good book I read with the kids I think with the Crusades and stories about the pilgrims fleeing, somehow one forgets how much good the humble people in the church did It is also something to contemplate being unable to reach any of ones family, as we are always connected now, with the age of smart phones and social networking My children liked the book they were 5, 7, 9 all boys I do wish we had read it slower than a chapter a night.

    18. Great little book about a boy who s hopes of becoming a knight are dashed when he loses the use of his legs as a result of illness He winds up being cared for by a kind and patient monk, Brother Luke, from whom he learns skill and virtue, and ultimately learns that even a crippled boy can have the courage of a knight.

    19. I loved this one growing up Glad to finally read it again I think the author does an excellent job with plotting as well as simple lessons that children can be inspired by without making it too obvious Plus, a fun adventure story.

    20. DO NOT READ THIS BOOK This is the worst book I ve ever read in my whole entire life If there was a zero star I would rate it a zero star WARNING DO NOT READ

    21. Newbery Medal 1950During the Plantagenet Period, a young Robin, disabled with unknown crippling malady, is left alone as his father goes to war and his mother must attend the queen who is sick Luckily for Robin, Brother Luke is a kind, gentle soul who guides and teaches him than scholarly facts, but also the ways of life, both fortune and misfortune Brother Luke encourages him to look for The Door in the Wall which opens avenues to him in the face of adversity With strengthening legs and a barr [...]

    22. I ve always loved this story of a well born boy crippled by polio in the middle ages who finds a way to become a hero It s both gentle and vivid and brings the period to life A lovely insomnia re read.

    23. A sweet little tale of courage and overcoming obstacles A good, short story, but not my favorite book by this author.

    24. It was fine not great but not terrible The way old English was used was a bit annoying, although it might have been realistic not sure.Also, I think Robin, the main character, was a bit of a brat He s always saying he wants something instead of asking There was a funny part sort of when John and Robin jumped out the window at the inn and then the thieves jumped at each other because they thought they had caught Robin or John.So overall, honestly, I probably wouldn t have simply picked it up jus [...]

    25. Another great book from Sonlight I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one aloud If you are studying the Middle Ages, you should definitely add this one to your reading list.
