SummaryAdd a Summary
This story is told by several different narrators, all who have heard about a group of magical children. The group of three includes William who is from a monastery, Jacob a Jewish boy, and Jeanne a girl who has visions of the future. They are joined by Jeanne’s dog Gwenforte who has recently been raised from the dead. The children are making their way through France and have many adventures, some scarier than others. While traveling the children meet the King of France. At first he enjoys meeting this magical group of children but then he realizes that they don’t have the same religious beliefs as him. In fact the children are trying to save the books of the Jewish people, these are the same books that the King has ordered to be burned. When the King learns that the children are planning something to save the books, he orders his army to capture them. They escape from the castle and lead them all on a chase around France. This is a fun and exciting tale based on legends and bits of history from the Middle Ages.
