I really liked this book because two kids go on a journey to find their uncle. If they can't, their mother might die. On the way, they get kidnapped. This is the best book I've ever read.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a book I would recommend June 21 2009
By K. Dallas - Published on
This is what our 11 year old son had to say about this book: "This is a very exciting book! It's in a perfect mideaveal setting, in which Robert (who is cautious) and his little sister Alice (who is a lot less cautious) go on an adventure to find their mysterious Uncle Raimond, but on the way have to deal with, Hunger, theives, and biggest of all imprisonment in a tower. The only thing I dislike about this book, is that it is not longer!!"

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stepping Stone March 11 2010
By A. Karlsson - Published on
I'm not a great fan of easy readers but I do see their place. Sadly, too many of them have stories not worth the telling or not up to speed for late readers whose minds are ahead of their reading abilities. For historical interest and general plot, this was a good book for my son. I appreciate that the author strayed away from stereotypes of boys and girls and yet made it clear that the boy was increasing in his bravery, too, even if his sister was the more naturally fearless -- and that they did so without losing historical merit.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the words of a ten-year-old boy "Awesome!" Jan. 30 2012
By Colinda M. Cole-French - Published on
The Minstrel in the Tower is about two children who are looking for their uncle in Bordeaux. Then they get caught by these thieves and one of them will have to climb down the tower they are trapped in. I thought that it was very adventurous and it was very awesome. I liked how they really were kind to each other and how they were friends. There was a lot of adventure and it was a very , very, very good book in a lot of ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice book Oct. 10 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My dd and I have enjoyed going through this book as she studies the Middle Ages. Well written with an interesting story line. Simple and short enough for a younger age reader to read on their own or enjoy it being read to them.

3.0 out of 5 stars feels abridged April 2 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Many bits of plot and story are given only a sentence or three, with the reader left to infer all that it means. The story feels constantly abridged. In attempting to keep the story short, it would probably be nicer to have fewer aspects, but those more developed.
