Originally written for performance in a school in which she was librarian, Laura Amy Schlitz's Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! (the 2008 Newbery Award-winner) is comprised almost entirely of monologues spoken by a variety of Medieval villagers, a fact underlined by the books subtitle, Voices from a Medieval Village. Aided by footnotes explaining period words, occasional full-page background notes, and illustrations of Medieval dress and customs by Robert Byrd, this unusual Newbery selection is a rare find in first edition and makes the era come alive. In Very Fine condition in a Very Fine dust jacket.
