Children’s Book Committee – November Pick

Longbow Girl
by Linda Davies
(The Chicken House, 2016)

Merry, trained as an archer in a 700-year family tradition, finds a portal to 1537 Wales, where warfare rages for her ancestral lands.

Our Young Reviewer says:

“This book was amazing! Although the beginning was a little slow, the rest of the book was action packed and exciting. I loved how Linda Davies mixed modern Wales with 16th century Wales. Along with being funny and inspiring, this book also teaches history in subtle ways. I also really liked how the author told Longbow Girl from different perspectives, which informed readers of the plot things that made the story even more interesting.”
