    I clearly said that you would be obliged to tend the fire. So, Karen Cushman, since this book is complete and published, would you consider writing a sequel? She deftly handles Matilda's shifting perceptions and creating sympathy for her in the reader. She soon comes to learn compassion, trust and becomes less judgemental as she becomes aquainted to life outside the Church. What would this bonesetter person be like? But I could not.

    Finally she asked Peg, "When will there be breakfast? Then, she mixes her mom's hair dye with her dad's hair tonic, so her dad's hair gets colored in funkily. While reading this book, readers will explore the importance of friendship, humility, developing a sense of self and adapting to the changes life presents. Mater Theobald wears a long, black cloak and is bald headed.

    I must leave you here. The author could easily have lengthened the story--expanding on Matilda's growth from a self-centered, self-righteous, Matilda Bone book girl to someone who learns of the importance of friendship, sacrifice, and an appreciation of others. We'll see children ovenidden by ale carts and left with broken limbs, clumsy carpenters who tripped or fell or hammered their fingers instead of nails, men and women crippled by disease. Matilda also sees two examples of the Trunchbull in action—first, when the Trunchbull throws Amanda around by her hair, and second, when the Trunchbull makes Bruce eat an entire cake.

I love seeing Cushman use real medicines and treatments from the 's in this book!

Matilda longed to be back at the manor, where there were proper beds, beef and cheese and ale, and fires blazing in fireplaces tended by the huge, quiet Donal, or even bouncing on that bony horse headed toward London.

She licked her sticky fingers and handed a slice of sausage to Matilda. I don't want a character in the early 's performing the heimlich maneuver even if you don't call it that. We prayed, and he taught me about God and the Devil, Heaven and Hell.

I adored all the characters in this book especially, of course, the strong women! The air was warm and dusty and smelled of wood smoke, sausages, goose grease, and lemon balm. Matilda stopped imagining and shuddered with dread.

Matilda Bone goes through a personal journey, her view on things changes giving her a wider understanding on life and the people around her. Then Matilda starts school, where she joins Miss Honey's class.

Closing the door, she called, "The fire is lit. The saints, and this child knows many, respond with humor and sometimes sound advice. There was a dark, shabby front room with table, benches, and bed with a blue coverlet, and another room beyond. Her rival is Master Theobald.
