The Hidden Treasure of Glaston

I can't say enough about this book. The Hidden Treasure of Glaston is an adventure story about two friends in Medieval times searching for the Holy Grail.  The book won the Newbery Honor in 1947. Eleanore Jewett did a marvelous job unfolding the plot, building characters and relationships, and creating a story that's just a lot of fun to read. Delightful!
Great book for 10-12 year old readers that has some good messages, a little bit of history, some interesting vocabulary, a great story, and absolutely no garbage.
