Annette (BookHive (www.bookhive.org))
Travel back in time to England during the Middle Ages and meet ten year old Robin, son of Sir John de Bureford. While Robin's parents are away serving royalty, Robin is crippled by a strange illness. But his illness does not prevent him from doing what he must to make his parents proud of him. Join Robin as he leaves plague-infested London, lives in a monastery, and travels halfway across England to the castle of Lindsay to serve as a squire. When the Welsh attack the castle, will Robin have enough strength and courage to fight? ReadThe Door In the Wall and discover for yourself what it was like to be ten years old during the Middle Ages. Category: Award Books; Classics; Historical. Grade Level: Intermediate (4th-6th grade). 1949, Doubleday. Ages 9 to 12.

Susan Pochapsky (Audiofile, December/January 1999)
De Angeli's classic was written for middle-grade readers, but this is a children's story the whole family can enjoy because the unabridged production is simple, elegant, robust and finely crafted in every way. Actor Roger Rees is expressive but never overly emotional. (That's a good choice--a sentimental reading would turn off some youngsters and most adults.) Spare, tasteful sound effects (church bells, chant) and touches of specially composed music give an immediate feel of the medieval time and setting. Well-conceived, well-produced, well-performed.
