Includes a detailed historical note and bibliography

1242. On a dark night, travelers from across France cross paths at an inn and begin to tell stories of three children. Their adventures take them on a chase through France: they are taken captive by knights, sit alongside a king, and save the land from a farting dragon. On the run to escape prejudice and persecution and save precious and holy texts from being burned, their quest drives them forward to a final showdown at Mont Saint-Michel, where all will come to question if these children can perform the miracles of saints.

Join William, an oblate on a mission from his monastery; Jacob, a Jewish boy who has fled his burning village; and Jeanne, a peasant girl who hides her prophetic visions. They are accompanied by Jeanne's loyal greyhound, Gwenforte . . . recently brought back from the dead. Told in multiple voices, in a style reminiscent of The Canterbury Tales, our narrator collects their stories and the saga of these three unlikely allies begins to come together.

Beloved bestselling author Adam Gidwitz makes his long awaited return with his first new world since his hilarious and critically acclaimed Grimm series. Featuring manuscript illuminations throughout by illustrator Hatem Aly and filled with Adams trademark style and humor, The Inquisitor's Tale is bold storytelling thats richly researched and adventure-packed.

I'm amazed by this book. Here are two reasons why:

1. It's about religion, ethics, prejudice, and the nature of good and evil. It's so deep, but it's never dull. It's mind-expanding, but it's not preachy. It's a really exciting book that explores really big questions.

2. It's like a kid's version of the Canterbury Tales! What? How did Adam Gidwitz even do that? Besides introducing young readers to elements of one of the foundational works of English literature, there are a lot of other cool links to the past here. The author's notes at the end of the book are definitely worth reading.

Finally, I'll mention that there's some spectacular violence in this book. I often dislike violence in children's literature, but I think it may have served a purpose here that makes it understandable and even great fodder for discussion. The Middle Ages were a violent time, for one. So you can say violence is a realistic aspect of the historical setting. And it also complicates our heroes, particularly William. They are saints, but they are not perfect.

But this book almost is. ( )

Wow! This is going to go down as being one of my favorite books of all time. It is more than deserving of the Newberry Honor. Not only was the subject matter well researched, the message of tolerance, friendship, and the love of learning is such a timely topic. In an era when religious persecution still exists, when groups of people are still being targeted for their faith or color of their skin, when the U.S. government seeks to eradicate the humanities and the arts, this book helps to answer the hard questions of injustice within our world. In short: The medieval times were quite like ours. Did I mention this book is somewhat based on The Canterbury Tales? I also appreciate how Gidwitz is able to slyly incorporate fantasy elements within a narrative that is loosely historical. He does so with great ease. He never talks down to his audience but assumes his audience can handle heavy topics. This book simply put is literary gold. It is engrossing and a heartfelt adventure tale (that is often quite humorous). Loosely based on historical subjects, I wouldn't be surprised if you found yourself reading up on the medieval ages after reading this wonderful book. ( )

A well-researched, fun, and suspenseful middle grade historical fantasy. I enjoyed the beginning (meeting the characters) very much. The middle got a little too "scavenger hunt"-y, with characters going from place to place on a quest. The ending was great - I cried.

Clever structure with short chapters and cute illustrations to keep a young reader engaged (I, a grown-up, did not get much out of them and kept forgetting to even look at the illuminations). Religious themes, but no clear "stance," just a lot of infusing of religion into these historical peoples' lives (which seemed historically accurate).

I would recommend for kids 10+. There are a few gory moments, a few sad losses, and some heavy messages about race and religion (though treated well, I thought). No romance, no profanity, a few fart jokes. ( )

This tale is a grand adventure and practically perfect in every way! I loved the format borrowed from Canterbury Tales; I loved the illumination and marginalia; I loved the rich historical details and hagiology; but mostly I just loved the story. ( )

Read b/c child's teacher recommended it. Favorite part was the realistic medieval setting and details. Unfortunately, as a children's book, those are thinner than I would have liked as an adult reader. Decent for what it is, but not as memorable as I hoped. A tad preachy. ( )

What Gidwitz, the author of the Grimm trilogy, accomplishes here is staggering. “The Inquisitor’s Tale” is equal parts swashbuckling epic, medieval morality play, religious polemic and bawdy burlesque, propelling us toward a white-knuckle climax where three children must leap into a fire to save . . . a Talmud. And yet, the rescue of this single book feels like higher stakes than any world-incinerating superhero battle. Part of this is because “The Inquisitor’s Tale” is dense with literary and earthy delights, including Hatem Aly’s exquisite illustrations, which wrap around the text as in an illuminated manuscript. Working together, the art and story veer exuberantly between the high and the low to make Jeanne, Jacob and William feel like flesh-and-blood children, despite their holiness.

A final clarification, then: God is hot in children’s books from major non-Christian publishers this year. Ahhhh. That’s better. Indeed, in a year when serious literary consideration is being heaped upon books like John Hendrix’s Miracle Man, in walks Adam Gidwitz and his game changing The Inquisitor’s Tale. Now I have read my fair share of middle grade novels for kids, and I tell you straight out that I have never read a book like this. It’s weird, and unfamiliar, and religious, and irreligious, and more fun than it has any right to be. Quite simply, Gidwitz found himself a holy dog, added in a couple proto-saints, and voila! A book that’s part superhero story, part quixotic holy quest, and part Canterbury Tales with just a whiff of intrusive narration for spice. In short, nothing you’ve encountered in all your livelong days. Bon appétit.
