From Our Editors

Katherine Paterson has a distinctive touch when it comes to humanizing her remarkable characters, a skill that's garnered her the Newbery Medal several times. Tackling a classic adventure in Parzival: The Quest of the Grail Knight, the highly respected author adds her characteristic charm, humanity and hope to the well-known story of the boy fated to seek the sacred vessel of eternal life. Growing up in the wilderness, young Parzival has no knowledge of his destiny -- until the fateful day he becomes aware that he will play one of the greatest roles in the history of his land and people. Packed with adventure, romance and action, this story ranks with Jip and Lyddie as one of Paterson's incomparable novels, showing young people overcoming obstacles and thriving on their unique challenges.
