Crispin: The Cross of Lead
The first book in the popular Crispin series. Accused of a crime he did not commit, Crispin has been declared a "wolf's head." That means he may be killed on sight, by anyone. If he wishes to remain alive, he must flee his tiny village. This book won the prestigious Newbery Award for children's literature. It's a page-turner historical fiction book that's perfect for use when teaching about the Middle Ages.
